Event Details

Explorations of human disease: The bacterial frontier
Ami Bhatt


How do you unravel the cause of a new human disease? For Ami Bhatt, the answer involved solving a DNA puzzle. Faced with a human disease of unknown bacterial origin, Ami used a combination of DNA fragments from diseased tissue and several computational methods to piece together an explanation. What she discovered was the genome of a new species of bacteria believed to have caused the disease. Ami will talk about her discovery and its possible implications for the future of infectious disease.
