What do we do?
The group is active in the fields of comparative genomics and shotgun metagenomics. We study molecular evolution, develop approaches to genomics data analyses, and implement computational pipelines. We apply evolutionary models to digest sequencing data, and revise these models using the novel data. We study functional genomic elements on the basis of sequence variability among different species and within populations. Our interests range from arthropod genomics, including invertebrate vectors of human pathogens, to the evolution of viruses and clinical microbiology.
