Josh Granek is a biologist and bioinformatician with broad interests in using genomics to understand how the immune system interacts with microbes. This interest includes the roles played by both beneficial and harmful bacteria, fungi, and viruses. We study single microbes and microbiomes, primarily using high-throughput sequencing methods. We have a particular interest in developing new experimental and analytical methods that leverage the power of high-throughput sequencing. We are also interested in using deep learning in microbiology research.
