Addressing antibiotic resistance

through computation, experiment, and theory


Welcome to the Baym Lab at Harvard Medical School, started in 2017! Our research broadly concerns microbial evolution, at the intersection of experimental, theoretical and computational techniques. Antibiotic resistance, in addition to being one of the defining public health threats of our time, provides an excellent system for studying evolution. Computationally, we study the application of algorithmic and information-theoretic techniques to gain insight from large and noisy biological datasets.
