Tim Driscoll, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Research Interests

At the Microbial Metagenomics Laboratory, Dr. Driscoll uses the tools of genomics and bioinformatics to study the functional capacity encoded in diverse microbial communities, with special focus on the mobile genetic elements (MGEs) within a community (the mobilome).The long-term goal is to understand how the mobilome operates as an information stream, among and between microbial communities, to facilitate niche colonization and adaptation.
