Dr. Andrew Camilli is a Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology & Microbiology at Tufts University School of Medicine and an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He studies pathogenic mechanisms of bacterial pathogens using high throughput approaches. His laboratory recently developed the TN-seq technology to define gene functions using high throughput transposon insertion and deep sequencing techniques (Nature Methods, 2009, 6:767). This technique has been widely applied for identify essential genes in many microbial pathogens. He also discovered the CRISPR/Cas system in bacteriophage (Nature, 2013, 494:489).
