Biodiversity toolbox. Development and validation of standardized analysis of soil biodiversity

Fellowship Code: 
Copenhagen University
Prof. Søren J. Sørensen

ESR1 will use a combination a high throughput technologies to describe soil microbial communities based on DNA and RNA. The work involves second generation DNA-sequencing (pyrosequencing and Illumina-based) technology. In addition, ESR1 will implement protocols for quantitative analysis of specific bioindicators using Q-PCR.

Research Objectives: 

To develop, validate and implement standardized protocols for analysis of soil biodiversity.
