This is the lab of Luis Pedro Coelho at Fudan University in Shanghai located at the Institute of Science and Technology for Brain-Inspired Intelligence.
We are interested both in developing novel computational methods and in applying them to large scale problems. Our focus is on the global microbiome and in exploiting publicly available data to gain understanding into microbial ecosystems.
Lab motto for 2021: “Everyone is an expert and everyone is a novice”
