Currently, our participating faculty represents more than 18 departments from 10 colleges across campus.
Christopher MarxAssociate Professor Department of Biological Sciences
Dr. Marx moved his lab to Idaho at the start of 2014, with the interactive environment being a significant draw. His broad research goal has been to understand the physiological basis of evolutionary or ecological phenomena, with the methanol-consuming Methylobacterium as our major model system, and experimental evolution as a key approach. These data are integrated with systems-level, mathematical models of physiology to generate quantitative predictions linking genotype to phenotype for both individual strains and synthetic microbial communities.
Dr. Marx is the MetToxin working group leader.
