Marine Viral Ecology Laboratory


The Marine Viral Ecology Laboratory (MarVEL) group is part of the Department of Oceanography in the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Our group investigates the ecology and diversity of microbial life in the sea, including human pathogens in coastal waters. We are particularly interested in the diversity of viruses and how viruses influence the ecology and evolution of plankton. A summary of some of our research interests and projects can be found here. Members of MarVEL are affiliated with the Center for Microbial Oceanography - Research and Education (C-MORE), and the Hawaii Ocean Observing System (HiOOS). Some of our previous work was carried out in affiliation with the Pacific Research Center for Marine Biomedicine (PRCMB).
