computational biology disease host-pathogen genomics transcriptomics

Alex is a molecular biologist seeking to incorporate computational biology into the study of infectious disease and host-pathogen interactions. She is currently using comparative genomics and transcriptomics to identify bacterial and host factors that govern Salmonella persistence. Before joining the Broad Institute, she received her PhD in biology from New York University where she studied the endosymbiotic relationship that parasitic nematodes have with the bacteria Wolbachia.
