I am in charge of the team behind the next-generation sequencing platform at our institute, which is part of the Norwegian High-Throughput Sequencing Centre (NSC). We perform PacBio and 454 sequencing for research groups in Norway and other countries.
My main responsibilities are coordination of the activities and contact with users. I am also chiefly responsible for the bioinformatic analysis of the data.
In our research group, the instrument is used for bacterial de novo sequencing, metagenomics and the sequencing of the cod genome. For these projects, I am performing assemblies and downstream analysis.
DISCLAIMER: I am not involved in developing newbler, nor am I in any way associated with 454Life Sciences/Roche. I am ‘just’ a frequent user of the program interested in sharing his knowledge.
