Mark Sistrom
Professional Title: 
Assistant Professor, Life and Environmental Sciences
Sustainability Research and Engineering, Room 263
Lab Location: 
Sustainability Research and Engineering, Room 264
Research Interests: 

Professor Sistrom works broadly across a number of bacterial and viral systems to explore evolutionary  hypotheses using high throughput sequencing and bioinformatics methods. In particular,  he is interested in:

  • How microbial populations change over space and time.
  • What selective pressures lead to emergent disease.
  • How the evolutionary properties of microbes can be exploited to manage or eliminate disease.

He is interested in collaborative projects that look at pertinent evolutionary questions in a range of biological systems using big data approaches.
