The Raes lab combines large-scale, next-generation sequencing with novel computational approaches to investigate the functioning and variability of microbial communities. In addition, the lab focuses on the development of computational methods for the analysis of (next-generation) sequence data and the investigation of community properties from metagenomics, metatranscriptomics and meta-metabolomics data, which are applied in a wide range of environments (ocean, soil, etc.).

The marine research of the lab focuses on comparative metagenomics and metatranscriptomics of ocean plankton communities, from viruses to fish larvae. This research is also part of the Bioinformatics and (Eco-)systems Biology lab of VIB.
