metagenomics / microbiota, and the cros-omic integration thereof.

A diverse set of analytical techniques is employed, including statistical analysis, machine learning, network analysis and high-dimensional data visualisation as well as the design of computational algorithms.

This enables the identification of genetic variants, genes and other biomolectular / organismal entities that differ between conditions, as well as the use of these differences to make disease predictions, infer pathogenesis and identify targets for intervention.
