Liz Dinsdale

My research uses genomics to investigate the biodiversity and ecology of microbes and viruses on coral reefs, kelp forest and shark epidermis. I am interested in understanding how microbial and viral function responds to environmental pressures and affects the health of the host and ecosystem. I have developed novel tools, undergraduate education programs and international workshops to analyze metagenomics data and understand the structure of host microbiomes. I demonstrated that the functional attributes of microbial and viral metagenomes could distinguish across biomes.
