Ben Vezina

Research scientist who studies the DNA of bacteria using computational biology, then test hypotheses in the laboratory using micro and molecular biology.

I am concerned about antibiotic resistance and am focused on alternative approaches to combat this serious issue, such as developing vaccines, antimicrobial proteins, diagnostics and surveillance, all of which are informed by genetics-based approaches. Also, bacteria are just cool, so that makes them interesting and worthy of study in their own right. A secret world in the ecological layer cake of Earth.
