Project Description and Objectives

With the rapid growth of genomics sequence data, it’s becoming more challenging to compare tens or hundreds of genomes over long or short evolutionary distances. Therefore, new methods demand the improvement of the comparison of many genomes. In this project we are going to develop new methods to compare and visualize many big eukaryotic genomes with various evolutionary distances.

Main tasks during the internship will be: 1) Find an existing method to compare a model organism genome to more than 100 other genomes and 2) visualize the comparison results.

 

Eligibility Requirements

  • Interested students should have basic knowledge of molecular biology and should be familiar with at least one programming language.

 

Main Tasks

Finish a research report.

Give two research presentations (i. a technical presentation in the lab; ii. a final presentation in the School of Life Sciences and Biotechnology).
