Gabriel Moreno- Hagelsieb, who holds a SHARCNET Chair in Biocomputing, is researching the genomic sequence of microbes. His research analyzes the DNA of all known microbes to determine how their genes are organized into functional modules, which genes work together to attain a particular biological function, how they evolve, and how genetic changes affect their function. Moreno- Hagelsiebís bioinformatics research has applications in the development of antimicrobial agents and for engineering organisms that destroy pollutants.
