ANUPHAP PRACHUMWAT, DR.
Anuphap is a researcher at National Center for Genetic Engineering andBiotechnology (BIOTEC) in Thailand. He received his doctorate in Genetics from the University ofChicago, USA, with a thesis on molecular evolution of gene duplicability and gene functions.Currently, he focuses on utilizing genomic sequences to better understand interactions between shrimp and pathogens.
He has collected and constructed a comprehensive shrimp transcriptome database forcataloging shrimp genes responsive to pathogens. He analyzes genomes and transcriptomes of severalshrimp pathogens (bacteria, virus, bacteriophages and microsporidia) for developing detection methods and strategies to control infections and reduce virulence.
