Debbie Lindell is a Professor in the Faculty of Biology at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology and holds the Dresner Chair in Life Sciences and Medicine. Research in her lab investigates various aspects of host-virus interactions, including the ecology, physiology, genetics and evolution of these interactions. Her research focuses on the ecologically important photosynthetic cyanobacteria, Synechococcus and Prochlorococcus, and the T4-like and T7-like cyanophages that infect them. The main goal of research in the Lindell Lab is understanding how host-virus interactions impact the ecological role of both cyanobacteria and cyanophages and their coexistence in ocean ecosystems. To this end, her lab has developed a method for the quantification of cyanophage populations and the extent to which they infect their hosts in nature. She has also developed a method for the genetic manipulation of these cyanophages to investigate the role of novel genes in taking over host processes.
