Ed Haynes

Edward has previously studied the genomics and epidemiology of a bacterial disease of honey bees, using genomic data to develop a typing scheme for the causative pathogen that is now in routine use in the National Bee Unit.

Edward's main interests are in genomic epidemiology of foodborne pathogens of humans, as well as microbial community analyses, for example in relation to untargeted detection of pathogens, or Antimicrobial Resistance genes.

More broadly within the sequencing team there is considerable expertise in plant pathology, including untargeted detection of novel viruses, and the genomics of bacterial and fungal pathogens of plants and honey bees.
