As an environmental microbiologist, Wommack studies viruses, with particular focus on the ecology of viruses in soil and marine environments. Using DNA sequences from samples collected during deep sea dives, Wommack's lab analyzes microbes of hydrothermal vents. Wommack is the first scientist ever to explore the ecology of viruses within soils using direct procedures that do not require isolation and cultivation of microorganisms.
