Microbes in the built environment

Last updated about 3 years ago

The Biology in the Built Environment Center at University of Oregon (http://biobe.uoregon.edu/) seeks to understand the microbiome of indoor environments. The goal is to optimize the design and operation of buildings to promote both human health and environmental sustainability. These are some of the organisms that have been found so far to be especially distinctive in mechnically-ventilated spaces or window-ventilated spaces. Based on results in press from Jessica Green and Steve Kembel.
