Biodiversity toolbox. Implementing molecular tools for soil biodiversity investigation

Fellowship Code: 
Copenhagen University
Prof. Søren J. Sørensen

A bioinformatics pipeline using public pipelines, existing pipelines at the collaborating partners and custom-made pipelines will be set up for efficient analysis of the huge amount of data generated by sequencing. Provide relevant bioinformatic data sets on factors involved in evaluation of links between biodiversity and ecosystem function. The data output will be standardized to enable efficient dissemination of data. Evaluation and validation of methods developed on soil samples from the trans European test sites. In addition, ESR2 will perform genetic screening for enzymes with application in biotech.

Research Objectives: 

To develop bioinformatics pipeline for soil biodiversity investigation.
