PhD project by Trine Zachariasen

Name: Trine Zachariasen
Project Title:
Developing metagenomic methods to study viruses and plasmids of the microbiome
Group:
Metagenomics
Supervisors:
Gisle Alberg Vestergaard and Anders Gorm Pedersen 

Project Description: 
The aim of this PhD project is to develop a method specialized in extracting and combining sequences from viruses and plasmids of metagenomic samples.

Perspective:
This will increase our understanding of the role of extrachromosomal elements (viruses and plasmids) on bacterial evolution, their effect on human health and enlighten us on the spread of antimicrobial resistance genes.
