Head of Centre
Prof. Dr. Teh Lay Kek
The centre mainly focuses on:
1. Human genomics
Quality control, processing and analysis of raw human genome data to extrapolate information relevant to health, population, migration studies.
2. Bacterial genomics
Quality control, processing and analysis of raw bacterial genome data to extrapolate information relevant to pathogenicity, virulence, phylogenetic and phylogenomic patterns, and resistance evolution.
3. Bacterial metagenomics
Analysis of multispecies bacterial samples derived from multiple sources (e.g. stool), for the relevant studies (e.g. health and cognition).
