Sarah’s main focus in the Amaral Lab is the assessment of the reproducibility and replicability of bioinformatic pipelines commonly used in RNA-Seq data processing. She’s using an approach of benchmarking and parameters tuning to assess biases associated to the use of common specific softwares in RNA-Seq analyses. She also participates into a project aiming at connecting lung microbiome of infectious pneumonia patient from Intensive Care Units with their clinical response to classic pneumonia treatments encompassing the usage of antibiotics.
