Uses advanced bacterial genomics and metagenomics to understand the evolution and spread of pathogens and mine genomic data to identify robust, risk-informative diagnostic markers


Biography:

 

Uses advanced bacterial genomics and metagenomics to understand the evolution and spread of pathogens and mine genomic data to identify robust, risk-informative diagnostic markers. We use these markers and design smart detection probes to use as field-compatible technologies. This technology-driven global health approach is accessible to the communities who need it the most.
