Dr Zallot interests lie in the discovery and characterization of genes, enzymes, and transporters of unknown function from microbes, with a particular focus on health improvement.
His research is at the interface of bioinformatics, functional genomics, biochemistry, and microbiology.
Even if powerful, the comparative genomics approach is not very well known, and thus underutilized. As a remedy, Dr Zallot is committed to its instruction, promotion and also continued development, looking for new ways to exploit the data publicly available to generate hypotheses that can be tested in the laboratory.
Rémi Zallot obtained his Doctorate degree from Université de Bordeaux (France), worked at University of Florida (USA) and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA) before joining Swansea University
