Sequencing

Sequencing data represent the foundation of the project. The Sequencing Pillar encompasses two main aspects, sequencing of genes of all microorganisms and the genomes of individual microorganisms. The Sequencing Pillar is primarily aimed at producing data for a reference set corresponding to the genetic repertoire of the intestinal microorganisms, both from metagenomic and whole-genome sequencing.

  • WPS.1 : Shotgun cloning and sequencing of genes of all microorganisms. The workpackage leader is Dr. J. Weissenbach from the CEA Genoscope, France.
  • WPS.2 : Full genome sequencing of the selected microorganisms. The workpackage leader is Dr. J. Parkhill from WTSI, United Kingdom.
