Late Lunch Talk by Eivind Andreas Baste Undheim

 

Time and place: Jan. 14, 2021 12:30 PM1:30 PM, Zoom

This week we discuss a paper on genome skimming. The paper presents the potential for using low-coverage shotgun data for species identification, moving forward from more traditional barcoding approaches.

Time and place: Dec. 10, 2020 12:30 PM1:30 PM, Zoom
