Dr. Sabeti’s lab focuses on detecting and characterizing signals of natural selection in humans and
pathogens. Projects include: (1) Developing analytical methods to detect and investigate natural
selection in the genome of humans and other species (2) Examining host and viral genetic factors
driving resistance to Lassa Fever in West Africa. (3) Examining signals of natural selection in pathogens,
including Lassa virus, Ebola virus, and Plasmodium falciparum malaria to understand how they rapidly
evolve, and studying their genetic diversity to guide long term intervention strategies.
