We develop computational methods to understand the functions of the human microbiome.





Scope of research

Our work involves method development to predict the structures, functions, and interactions of microbes and microbial proteins. We also analyse microbial data to understand how the changes in the microbiome impact human health. Specifically, in the context of mental health, type-1 diabetes, and inflammatory bowel disease.

Long-term, we want to develop a multi-scale understanding of the microbiome, from genes, through structures, to functions, and therapies.
