High throughput sequencing of deep sea metagenomes
About the project
The objective of this project is to establish high throughput sequencing as a tool for metagenome investigations associated with oil and gas explorations in the deep sea northern regions, and make this competence accessible to other VISTA research groups through collaborations. Our aims within the project are
- Comparison of microbial diversity at the sea floor and in oil reservoirs at different sites.
- Setting up competence around high throughput sequencing and bioinformatics analysis of metagenomic data and sharing this competence with collaborators around Norway.
Funded by the Norwegian Acadamy of Science and Letters (VISTA)
