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.
Mining marine metagenomes revealed a quorum-quenching lactonase with improved biochemical properties that inhibits the food spoilage bacteria Pseudomonas fluorescens
Post-antibiotic gut mucosal microbiome reconstitution is impaired by probiotics and improved by autologous FMT
Personalized gut mucosal colonization resistance to empiric probiotics is associated with unique host and microbiome features
Genomic resolution of a cold subsurface aquifer community provides metabolic insights for novel microbes adapted to high CO2 concentrations.
