Dr. Louis-Marie Bobay, North Carolina State University

September 18 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

The impact of recombination on bacterial evolution

Louis-Marie Bobay, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at North Carolina State University


Dr. Louis-Marie Bobay is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences and the Bioinformatics Research Center at North Carolina State University since 2023. His background integrates genomics, microbiology, evolutionary biology, and bioinformatics. During his PhD at Pasteur institute (Paris, France), he worked on the evolution of prophages in bacteria and developed expertise in microbial evolution, population genetics and bioinformatics. As a postdoctoral fellow at UT Austin, he started working on recombination in bacteria and developed approaches that use the patterns of recombination to infer species borders in bacteria. Dr. Bobay was an Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina Greensboro where he continued to work on these topics. He is now leading diverse projects at NCSU. He is developing new approaches to infer recombination rates in bacteria using Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC). He is also working on diverse projects such adaptive evolution in microbes, the dynamic of gene diversity in bacteria and the processes driving population structure and speciation in microbes.
