Biographical Info

Our team seeks to characterize microbial function in relation human GI health; specifically, how intestinal microbes affect host development, immunology, and circadian rhythm, and in turn, how host diet and genotype shape microbial community structure. To this end, our team is optimizing methods for describing microbiomal function. We have customized protocols using Biolog plates to compare microbiome metabolism, and are optimizing the application of Next-Gen Sequencing platform technology (i.e., metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, and 16S pyrosequencing), alternative culturing methods and bioinformatics.
