We use systems biology, computational modeling, and biomolecular engineering approaches
to understand, predict and control genetic communication in bacterial communities

Computational Biology

Combining mathematical models and biological experiments to understand bacteria


Leveraging NGS, RNAseq, and bioinformatics to gain mechanistic insights

Biomolecular Engineering

Designing genetic constructs to control bacterial interactions

Data Science & ML

Analyzing data with ML & AI techniques to predict and validate findings

What's Comp Bio?

We love STEM, and we want others to feel the same. Not entirely sure what Computational Biology is? Check out our YouTube Channel!
