#iEOS2014 Metagenetics and metagenomics, validating input population diversity, genome coverage, annotation and assembly

Neil show us how different amounts of DNA, DNA purification methods, library prep, sequencing platforms and informatic pipeline impact on metagenomic and metagenetic analysis of bacterial communities,

Heavy metals are essential for life, however, paradoxically exploitation of land for mineral extraction and manufacturing industry results in the release of large quantities of heavy metals that can be toxic to the natural environment. My research portfolio is designed to exploit state-of-the-art genomic, proteomic and metabolomic techniques to study the mechanisms by which biological systems handle heavy metals assessing: their impact as pollutants, their involvement in disease and the basic mechanisms by which they are bound within biological systems.
