Dr Liu Xianghui

Research Fellow
Biofilm Biology cluster, SCELSE


Dr Liu Xianghui is a bioinformatician and research fellow in Prof Alain Filloux’s Biofilm research group. He helps to analyse the RNA-seq and DNA-seq data to understand biofilm development processes and mixed species biofilm communities in marine environment, human skin, the home or in waste-water treatment systems. Before that he worked in Rohan William’s group on enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) and anaerobic ammonium oxidation (ANAMMOX) under tropical conditions. This helps to investigate the mechanism of biofilm formation, recover high quality genomic information for rare and uncultured bacteria species in biofilm and waste water samples and increase knowledge about the diverse roles of microorganisms in ecology, evolution, human and animal health.
