Bioinformatics: application of Next-generation sequencing to viral infections

Developing and applying statistical and computational algorithm for investigating viral evolution and host immune response

We are an interdisciplinary group interested in understanding how viruses evolve under the host immune response.

We take advantage of next generation sequencing technologies to study viral populations including low frequency variants.

Also, we are interested in studying immune escape variants.

In our computational analyses we take advantage of experimental data generated in our lab.
