We are happy to inform you, that our postdoc - Michał, recently received a research mini-grant funded within the BioS PRA under the strategic program Excellence Initiative at the Jagiellonian University in the academic year 2020/2021.
The aim of the project is to develop and implement a high-throughput insect-microbiome survey workflow. It will enable effective mining of existing, extensive insect marker gene sequencing datasets for the symbiont infection signal and complementing ongoing and future insect diversity surveys with microbiome information and symbiont genomic sequencing for selected specimens.
The project will be conducted in cooperation with Prof. Rudolf Meier’s research group, one of the world’s leading teams in high-throughput molecular characterization of individual insects at the scale of tens or hundreds of thousands.
Stay tuned! We will inform you of the progress of the project soon!
Congrats to Michał once again!
