Ellen Carbo



Ellen Carbo came from the world of building engineering and only later started a career in molecular biology and bioinformatics. First she began working in human genetics, from analyzing whole exome sequencing, performing non-invasive prenatal testing, interpreting genetic variants in the human genome (or in her own genome) and doing complex trait analysis. In 2018 she transferred from looking at only one human genome to the field of clinical microbiology to explore the detection of multiple species at once using next-generation sequencing. Her current work centers around the use of viral metagenomics in a clinical setting while obtaining a PhD.

Ellen is also coordinator of the Dutch bioinformatics group (SIG), part of the Dutch Society of Medical Microbiology (NVMM).
