  • Description of Research

    Our research group uses molecular analysis to test fundamental hypotheses in microbial ecology. Our focus is the Human Microbiome, but we are also interested in Space Biology and in developing user-friendly analytic tools to find microbial biomarkers of health and disease.

    Our research interests include: 1- Biomarkers of health and disease in human samples; 2- Biomarkers of homeostasis and perturbation in environmental samples; 3- Development of user-friendly bioinformatics tools.
