Welcome to the JBD Lab!


The research in our lab focuses on bacterial immune systems – including CRISPR-Cas and beyond – through a phage lens. We are interested in investigating the functions of these systems in bacteria that naturally encode them. We study the mechanisms by which they function and how phages fight back to antagonize or evade them.
