Mark Sistrom

Professional Title: 
Assistant Professor

PhD, 2012 - University of Adelaide

M.Phil, 2007 - Macquarie University (Australia)

B. Env. Sc.. 2003 - Macquarie University (Australia)

Office: SRE 263
Research Interests: 

Professor Sistrom works broadly across a number of bacterial and viral systems to explore evolutionary  hypotheses using high throughput sequencing and bioinformatics methods. In particular,  he is interested in:

  • How microbial populations change over space and time.
  • What selective pressures lead to emergent disease.
  • How the evolutionary properties of microbes can be exploited to manage or eliminate disease.

He is interested in collaborative projects that look at pertinent evolutionary questions in a range of biological systems using big data approaches.
