Wong Laboratory

Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario
What the facility does

Evolution, genetics, and microbiology

Area(s) of Expertise

We study genome evolution in real time, focusing on the evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacteria. By sequencing the genomes of bacterial populations evolved in the lab, we hope to understand when and why populations evolve at different rates and in different directions.
