Professor Creevey's research focuses on Computational biology with an interest in applying ecological and evolutionary principals to microbial communities, especially for those associated with animal hosts, everything from ruminants (Cattle and Sheep) to South American Poison Frogs. Prof. Creevey’s research group consists of students and postdoctoral researchers from both pure biological and computational backgrounds (and everything in between). The research in the group involves in vitro and in vivo experiments (with collaborators) but primarily focusses on bioinformatic analyses, including the development of novel open source computational approaches for evolutionary analyses and understanding microbial community organisation and structure.Find out more
