Bioinformatics & Molecular Evolution

Research topics in molecular evolution include the characterization of novel hantaviruses harbored by shrews, moles and bats in different geographic locations and investigation of Burkholderia pseudomallei in humans, animal models, and in the environment.  Faculty expertise is also available for the application of biostatistics and bioinformatics to infectious disease research.
