About This Project
Diabetes is a major cause of morbidity worldwide. Infections of diabetic foot ulcers are a common complication and can lead to lower-limb amputations.
In this work, I will collect bacterial samples from diabetic foot ulcers. I will perform genome sequencing and study the diversity and shared characteristics of these strains. The data collected will help us treat and prevent diabetic foot infections.
