William J. Brazelton

I am a scientist who studies natural microbial communities, specializing in metagenomic approaches. All of my data and code are open-source and publicly available here. I like to collaborate, so please reach out if you have new project ideas.

Current research projects:

Studies of unusual archaea and bacteria that live within these unique hydrothermal chimneys in the deep sea.
Explorations of potential microbial habitats within the subseafloor rocks underlying the Lost City hydrothermal field.
Microbial ecosystems fueled by the products of serpentinization on land.
Robust microbial communities inhabiting the famous salt flats in Utah.
Metagenomic approaches to monitor environmental reservoirs of antibiotic resistance.
