The Miller Mycology Lab focuses on the systematics and biodiversity of a broad range of fungi. Dr. Andrew Miller is particularly interested in the evolution of wood-inhabiting ascomycetes and is involved in research projects on the systematics of several groups in the Sordariomycetes, the biodiversity of soil fungi, and a large-scale inventory of Great Lakes fungi.

The lab’s research employs traditional taxonomic techniques such as field collecting, microscopy and culture in artificial media, while incorporating the latest technology in digital imaging, georeferencing and high-throughput DNA sequencing.
