The research team in the Faculty of Biotechnology & Food Engineering at the Technion is focused in three major research fields:
1. Environmental microbiology - genomics, pathogenesis, and evolutionary studies of V. vulnificus and V. cholera.
2. Gut microbiome - understanding the role of host’s genetics on microbial composition and host microbial interactions.
3. Biodiversity and genetics of yeasts, Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
These studies combine methodologies of molecular genetics, SSR genotyping, next generation sequencing, bioinformatics and classical microbiology in culture and in animal models.
