Dr Andre Mu is a microbial ecologist and bioinformatician. Andre’s research includes understanding the key role the microbiome of natural and built ecosystems play in the persistence, and transmission, of antimicrobial resistance genes and key microbial pathogens (e.g., vancomycin resistant Enterococcus faecium).
Andre utilises a wide array of culture-dependent and -independent techniques, including multi-omics (metagenomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics), bioinformatic analyses, bacterial physiology assays, and in situ sampling to answer research questions.
