Conceptual Schematic


THE THREE MOST SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS THAT DEFINE YOUR RESEARCH PROGRAM:
What are the ecological principles that govern the formation, nature and extent of microbial communities?
What is the role of the microbiome in human health and disease?
How can genomics-based approaches be used to study microbial communities at a systems-level including how can we improve the analysis, integration and interpretation of 'omics data types to answer biological questions?

FIVE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR AREAS OF INTEREST:
Microbiome, Genomics, Microbial ecology, Metagenomics, Big data

TECHNIQUES, MODELS, METHODS, ANALYTIC APPROACHES, ETC:
16S/18S rRNA gene sequencing
Meta-omics (whole community DNA, RNA sequencing, proteomics)
Multivariate statistical modeling
Metabolic modeling
