Welcome to “Martin’s Microbial Menagerie”!

I teach and do research here in Tacoma, Washington with a remarkable group of undergraduate students.  I am a microbial geneticist interested in predatory bacteria, microbial ecology, symbioses, and generally raising “prokaryotic pride.”  I teach introductory cell and molecular biology and microbial diversity.  Feel free to look around!
