We are collaborating with Prof. Marc Facciotti at UC Davis on comparative genomic analysis of a collection of halophilic archaea. For more information see http://archaea.ucdavis.edu/ (site currently under maintenance).
This project is supported by NSF Grant EF-0949453.
Publications from the project include:
- Mauve Assembly Metrics
- Two papers on Halophilic genome comparisons in progress
Prior work in the lab on halophilic archaea include sequencing the genome of Haloferax volcanii and some experimental work on this species.
