My research group has an interest in three primary areas:

  1. Metagenomic Analysis of Microbial Assemblages
  2. Biological control of disease using beneficial microorganisms
  3. Pathogenesis and control of virulent Aeromonas hydrophila.

The Liles laboratory conducts research at the intersection of environmental and clinical microbiology.


Area: Host-Microbial Interactions Core.
