1. Plant-microbiome interactions
2. The diversity of the human-associated microbiome
3. Designing computational methods for metagenomics analysis
We are studying the microbiome of different environments. The lab utilizes molecular biology techniques along with advanced computational methods and data science approaches to generate and analyze metagenomics and other data. Currently, research in the lab is focused on human-associated microbes and plant-microbiome interactions.
