I have spent the last several years applying sequencing technology to infectious disease diagnostics, evolution and public health research. Here at The Jackson Laboratory, I am leading a group that focuses on comparative genomics and antibiotic resistance of nosocomial and community-acquired infectious diseases. In addition, I am managing a number of metagenomic projects, including the second phase of the Human Microbiome Project.
