Microbial Communities of Animals
These researchers are performing tranascriptomic (RNA-Seq) and metagenomic (16S rRNA and shotgun metagenome) studies to better understand the role of gut and skin microbial communities in animal health. They are also using in vitro approaches to understand the interactions between bacterial plasmids and their hosts. They use Galaxy and software available through remote desktop to accomplish these tasks.
A bibliography of this group's publications acknowledging MSI is attached.
