Joseph Peters, Microbiology

The central focus of the Peters lab is microbial evolution with mobile genetic elements. We are interested in how highly evolved mobile elements contribute to evolving new functions with a strong focus on emerging pathogens and antibiotic resistance. We use a combination of tools, but primarily bioinformatics, molecular genetics, and biochemistry.
