Name of Granting or Contracting Agency/Entity: National Institute of Justice

Program Title: Human Decomposition Mosaic Model
CFDA Linked: National Institute of Justice Research, Evaluation, and Development Project Grants


This program will attempt to characterize the bacterial species community (microbiome) through the entire decomposition process. Our research will link together areas of biology, chemistry and forensics allowing us to test our ultimate hypothesis: that bacterial species guide changes over time drive decomposition and fundamentally modulate the tempo and mode of decomposition. The results will be presentation of final data at national meetings and manuscript development.
