The research activities of the Stanhope laboratory center on the application of molecular evolutionary biology principles and techniques to issues of epidemiology, comparative genomics, and population genomics within various groups of bacterial pathogens. We are interested in the molecular specifics of how bacteria are adapted to different hosts and in identifying genes associated with various disease phenotypes in both animals and humans. This work involves NGS comparative genomic and transcriptomic data acquired from a number of different groups of pathogenic bacteria, with particular emphasis on Streptococcus and Campylobacter. The laboratory includes both wet-lab and computational facilities.
