Work and Research

As a research group at the National University Biomedical Research Institute (NUBRI), we are conducting whole-genome sequencing of clinically relevant pathogenic micro-organisms using the next-generation sequencing platforms. These studies allow us to identify and investigate genetic polymorphisms, including single nucleotide polymorphisms, indels, genomic duplications, and genomic rearrangements that may contribute to phenotypic traits ranging from increased virulence to drug resistance. These also enabled us to identify regions of variation among closely related species that may be used for improved diagnostic.
