My laboratory has traditionally used "big data" approaches to solve problems in public health at the molecular level. We have created and evaluated large chemical screening datasets to help create new drug candidates for the treatment of malaria. We are using comprehensive whole genome sequencing approaches to find novel drug targets, and we are using genomics to find genes involved in pathogen drug resistance.
