Pardis Sabeti (1975 - )
Dr. Pardis Sabeti is a computational biologist and geneticist. She developed a bioinformatic statistical method in order to understand how genetics affects evolutionary adaptation in humans and pathogens. Dr. Sabeti was part of a team in 2014 that used genomic sequencing to identify the single point of infection from an animal reservoir to a human in the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Dr. Sabeti continues to use computational methods and genomics to understand the mechanisms of evolutionary adaptation in humans and pathogens.
