In the Castro Lab, we are interested in understanding the causes and consequences of microbial genetic diversity, and how we can apply this knowledge to gain insights into pathogen diagnostics and discovery, microbial distribution and epidemiology, and novel adaptations. For this, we use molecular and computational biology tools such as high-throughput sequencing, recombinant DNA technology, Bayesian statistics and phylogenetics, transcriptomics and metagenomics.
