Research in the Wildschutte lab focuses on novel drug discovery and phage therapy. We utilize a bacterial population-level approach and genomic analyses to identify environmental isolates that inhibit multi-drug resistant pathogens.
M.S. and Ph.D. positions are available.

Corporate grant awarded from Betco to study Bacillus diversity.
We recently published a manuscript in which students perform bioinformatics research in a microbiology course. This strategy can be a solution for online teaching. Check it out: Expanding Tiny Earth to genomics: a bioinformatic approach for an undergraduate class to characterize antagonistic strains.
Grant awarded by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for phage therapy research.
