May meeting

Join us virtually on Wednesday, May 19, at 4:30 PM to learn more about quite interesting bioinformatics subjects. You will have the pleasure to hear,

  • Andrea Watson, Determinants of microbial colonization and resilience in the human gut
  • Albert Feghaly, Reducing chaos: Conserved mRNA patterns allow variant-agnostic vaccine target predictions

Andrea is a microbiologist who studies the ecology and evolution of complex microbial communities using ‘omics strategies, with a focus on the human gut microbiome. She received a B.Sc. in microbiology and biochemistry from the University of Toronto and is currently a 5th year Ph.D. candidate at the University of Chicago in the Meren Lab. Her dissertation work leverages genome-resolved metagenomics, ecological theory and publicly available data to identify determinants of microbial colonization and resilience in the human gut.


We will use jitsi for the meeting (see the link on the Meetup Page). The event will also be streamed on YouTube Live.
