Mission

To train future generations of scientists to decipher how microbes make Earth habitable for humans.

 

Goals

We use integrated modern microbiology to uncover new ways microbes contribute to the maintenance of life on Earth. Regardless of the ecosystem, we aim to understand how microbes balance nutrient cycles, mitigate pollutants, influence ecosystem productivity and human health. Our methods depend on the questions, but usually include the following:

01.

High throughput isolation of microbes

02.

Genome-enabled microbial physiology and functional genomics of environmental microbes

03.

Microbiome analyses to contextualize laboratory findings

04.

Ecosystem (meta)genomics to identify links between ecosystem processes and microbial metabolism

 
 
 
 

Harnessing the power of Earth’s tiniest lives

Philosophy

Paul launched the Carini Lab at the University of Arizona in July of 2017. We pride ourselves on being data-driven microbiologists, with an eye toward discovery. Sometimes that means we strike a balance between interpreting our data and following our intuition. It also means that we embrace a certain degree of failure.
