Claire works on the genetic basis of a bacterial pathogen that causes “melioidosis”, a disease which is highly endemic to Southeast Asia and Northern Australia and leads to death in 40% and 20% of those affected, respectively. As no vaccines are currently available, reducing morbidity and mortality caused by melioidosis is a key research question. Claire is using bioinformatics to predict bacterial genetic factors that influence the disease outcomes and severity. Ultimately, a better understanding of the bacterial components could improve our ability to manage this disease.Learn More
Kanthida has applied bioinformatics, machine learning, and statistical analysis to study living organisms in different areas such as medical, agricultural and environmental research. For example, she analyzed expression profiles of endometrial cancer for identification of prognostic biomarkers. Currently, she focuses on metagenomics to the study of the microbiome in different environments, such as, microbiome in wastewater treatment systems, coffee tree, and pig gut.Learn More
With the availability of new generation of genome sequencing platforms, DNA sequencing has become a common technique for tackling new biological questions. Dr. Weerayuth develops computational pipelines that facilitate the genome sequence data analyses and comparisons. His bioinformatics approaches have facilitated the understanding of the functional contents and evolutionary relationships of various organisms, as well as clinical insights of various diseases.Learn More
