Profile Genomics

My internship at Profile Genomics continues!

Samples of 1600 lizards, snakes and a reptile called a tuatara have been collected by Dr. Robert Macey.

With use of a modern technology called Oxford Nanopore,specific nucleotide sequences are established

To analyize this breadth of this gene capture data, bioinformatic tools and algorithms are used.

If youre curious as to the general nature of this field, here is a description in the form of a video:

And here is a wikipedia article:
