The Klein Omics Lab’s current research deals with a range of topics, most namely the detection and identification of food microbes, studies on metabolic effects of functional foods, metabolic aspects of gut microbiota dysbiosis, metabolomics analyses on maternal health, and metabolism studies of mosquito diapause.
