The University of Chicago, the Marine Biological Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory announced on May 13 a new partnership called The Microbiome Center, which will combine the three institutions’ efforts to understand the identity and function of microbes across environments.

These microbial communities—bacteria, viruses and fungi—affect every ecosystem on earth, including human bodies, oceans, homes and the surrounding land.
