Biographical details

Nathan Bachmann is a research officer with the Centre for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology (CIDM). He has completed his PhD in microbial genomics and bioinformatics at The University of Queensland in 2013. He has previously been a researcher at the University of the Sunshine Coast involved in project on culture-independent genome sequencing of Chlamydia pecorum from swab samples collected from koalas. In 2016, Nathan has joined CIDM to develop culture-independent genome sequencing techniques for M. tuberculosis.

Research interests

Nahan Bachmann is interested inculture-independent genome sequencing of fastidious pathogens including Mycobacterium tuberculosis. He is also investigating the evolution of mycobacterial species and the genetic mechanisms related to differences in growth rates.
