The W.M. Keck Foundation awarded $1M to the Center for Microbiome Analysis through Island Knowledge and Investigation (C-MĀIKI) to support a groundbreaking University of Hawaiʻi project that establishes the Waimea watershed on the north shore of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi as a model microbiome mesocosm—that is, a study site small enough to thoroughly investigate but large enough to reveal the complexities of natural systems. This is the first time an entire watershed, ridge to reef, has been studied to map its microbial communities and their ecosystem processes. Find out why this is important, for Hawaiʻi and for you.
