Microbiome Research & Applied Bioinformatics
What shapes the human microbiota?
We are interested in the human microbiome and its role for human health and disease.
We study human microbiome stability, ecology and therapeutic modulation; host/microbe interactions; and gastrointestinal homeostasis and dysbiosis.
We use experimental lab work and develop, adapt and apply microbial (meta-)genomics and bioinformatics methods.
