The drug resistome in the human gut microbiome in relation with farm animals
Prof. Zhu Baoli Working as principal investigator and Director of Microbial Genome Research Center in The Institute of Microbiology, full professor of the graduate school, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He got his PhD degree from Beijing Agricultural University in 1992, and his PhD work is on the construction of secretive-expression vector for the high-level expression of porcine growth hormone (pGH) gene in E.coli in order to obtain biologically active form of pGH directly from periplasmic space of E.coli. And then he became a research scientist in Beijing Agricultural University in 1993. Now his research is mainly focused on microbial genomics, metagenomics, genetic testing of pathogenic microbes and immunogenomics. His current research projects include human microbiome study on HBV patient, comparative genomics on BCG vaccine and Streptococcus suis, antibiotic resistance genes on different bacterial genomes and single cell genomics.
