Microbial 'omics


From the human gut and oral cavity to terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, we use our expertise in microbiology and computation to study the evolution and ecology of naturally occurring microbial populations through cultivation and 'omics strategies.

We strive to create advanced software platforms and design appropriate experiments to contribute to a wide range of concurrent research questions in the domain of microbial ecology.

Located at the University of Chicago Department of Medicine and affiliated with the Marine Biological Laboratory, we are constantly looking for collaborations that would challenge us with novel and intriguing questions.
