Welcome to 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. We are always looking for talented researchers to join our group, please contact Dr. Elshahed if interested.

While active on multiple research fronts, spanning all three domains of life, our work is currently 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. Please visit the research section for additional details.
