About George Bullerjahn

Our work is currently focused on detection, enumeration and the physiological performance of phototrophs and ecologically important chemolithotrophs in aquatic systems. We have identified genes and gene products inducible under nutrient (N, S, P) limitation and stationary phase conditions, and this work has aided in the development of whole-cell biosensors (bioreporters) detecting the bioavailability of nutrients in environmental samples. Additionally, we examine the composition and dynamics of cyanobacterial and nitrifying communities in freshwater environments, focusing primarily on the N and P cycles in the Laurentian Great Lakes.
