Research Summary

We apply experimental, comparative and computational approaches to investigate the factors contributing to the evolution of bacterial genomes and microbial communities. Some of our current projects investigate: 1. The role of adaptive and non-adaptive processes in bacterial genome evolution 2. The causes and consequences of genome reduction in bacterial pathogens 3. The origins of new genes and functional complexity 4.The microbial community diversity residing in Great Ape hosts
