Understanding Horizontal Gene Transfer in Bacteria and Archaea: Units of Transfer and Modes of Integration


Professor Bansal is leading a research project, recently funded by the NSF, to develop new computational methods for studying Horizontal Gene Transfer (HGT) in microbes. HGT is known to be one of the most important drivers of microbial evolution and an improved understanding of this evolutionary process is critical to understanding how microbes evolve, adapt, and thrive. Yet, even after decades of intensive research, many fundamental aspects of HGT remain poorly understood.
