Our laboratory studies infectious disease genetics and genomics--from direct effects of infection to pathogen-associated cancer. Our work traverses the fields of genomics, genetics, immunology, epidemiology, molecular evolution, and bioinformatics. For this work, we leverage and develop both experimental and computational tools with the ulitmate goals of improving clinical care and public health.

Heterozygome manuscript out on Bio archives

Our work making rainbows with the Greenhouse lab--demonstrating the utility of diverse microhaplotypes from amplicons for more powerfully addressing questions in malaria gen-epi (e.g.determinging transmission, population differentiation and complexity of infection). Kudos to Sofonias and Nick.
