Description

This research focuses on (1) detection and Identification of microbes using mass spectrometry; (2) development of biological sample preparation methods compatible with mass spectrometry-based proteomic techniques; (3) development of detection and identification approaches of microbes using proteomics, metabolomics, and panomics approaches; and (4) development of bioinformatic algorithms using computational biology principles to enhance the reliable identification and taxonomic classification of microbes at various phylogenetic levels. ECBC is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation and facilities that will provide multidisciplinary research projects for recent postdoctoral graduate or other interested scientists.
