New NERC pilot grant for IsoSeq
The lab has recently been awarded a small grant to trial the use of full-length transcriptome sequencing on the PACBIO Sequel platform: ‘Iso-Seq for improved annotation and analysis of duplicated salmonid genomes’.
It will be fun to see how this method performs in distinguishing salmonid gene duplicates. The data will be used to improve the annotation of the Danube salmon genome that is being produced currently.
Congratulations to Manu, who was the named researcher on the award
