Happy to announce that Dr. Nathan Bachmann from Center for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology (CIDM) will be presenting an overview of his work in Mycobacteria species and developing metagenomics. The title of his talk is “Key transitions in the evolution of rapid and slow growing Mycobacteria identified by comparative genomics”.
Nathan has completed a Ph.D. in microbial genomics and bioinformatics at the University of Queensland. He then worked as a post-doc at the University of the Sunshine Coast on culture-independent genome sequencing of Chlamydia pecorum from swab samples collected from koalas. Nathan currently works at the Center for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology (CIDM) at the Westmead Hospital in Sydney researching Mycobacteria species and developing metagenomics.
