Program in Genomics
- Encourage interdisciplinary collaborations and graduate and post-graduate research opportunities.
- Examine genetic diversity as it relates to differential survivorship and virulence.
- Identify mechanisms responsible for generating genetic diversity.
- Develop new tools for diagnostics and strategies for pathogen control and intervention
- Whole genome comparative analysis of Anaplasma marginale strains
- Genome sequences for attenuated and virulent strains of Babesia bovis
- Genome sequences for ruminant pathogens Mannheimia haemolytica and Bibersteinia trehalosi
- Genome sequence for Theileria equi
- Optical mapping of EHEC genotypes
- Development of machine-learning algorithms to identify effector proteins
- Development of machine-learning algorithms to identify apicoplast-targetted proteins
- Shot-gun sequencing to identify antibiotic resistance genes
- Microarray analyses of arthropod vector gene expression
- Microbiome analyses of arthropod vectors
- Microbiome analyses of Kenyan soils, humans and animals for pathogen discovery
- RNAseq analyses of bacterial transcriptomes
