This research seeks to gain insight into the relationship between the presence of specific microbes and disease, and how various factors affect the overall composition of the microbiome. Dr. Lefkowitz directs the bioinformatics component of this facility that provides investigators with the resources and assistance necessary to evaluate the large amounts of data generated by microbiome analysis. He describes some of the challenges involved in microbiome data analysis in a podcast on The Mix at UAB. The Winter 2013 edition of UAB Medicine explains UAB’s involvement in this work.
