Thanks to cheap DNA sequencing, we are slowly starting to understand the incredible diversity of bacteria. I build computational tools to help us use all this data to understand how diverse bacteria work. This understanding can help us manage our environment, control the bacteria inside us, and develop new biotechnologies.
