Dr. Elshahed's Lab

We are an environmental microbiology group with broad research interests. Our laboratory is located in the Venture I building, an Oklahoma State University research facility that aims at fostering interdisciplinary research within the university scientific community.


Our lab is active on multiple research fronts, spanning all three domains of life. Currently, our work is focused on two main research areas: Environmental genomics of novel yet-uncultured microbial phyla, and diversity, metabolism, genomics, and biotechnological potential of the anaerobic gut fungi.
