Our lab develops computational and experimental methods to study selection in microbes. Our computational work uses published microbial genome sequences. Vibrio species are the model experimental system for our study of adaptation to environmental stress conditions.

Current projects:

  • Microbiome community composition and dynamics
  • Detection of horizontal gene transfer among microbes
  • Evolution and reconstruction of ancient tRNA synthetases
  • Niche dynamics and evolution
  • Single-cell isolation and genome sequencing
  • Patterns of selection and recombination in bacterial genomes
  • Reconciliation of species and gene trees
  • Software for assembly and analysis of short read sequencing
  • Evolution of microbial gene expression patterns
  • Genetic basis of stress adaptation in artificial environments
