        Geobiology at MIT brings together groups seeking to understand how biology has influenced and been influenced by the environment throughout Earth's history.

We study the interactions between biological, chemical and physical processes in modern oceans, the record of biological and metabolic evolution stored in rocks and the biological mechanisms that create this record.

The Geobiology Program at MIT is also affiliated with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI), one of the premier centers for oceanographic research in the world.
