Development of a bioinformatic pipeline for genome analyses by means of NGS reads

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The advent of next generation sequencing technologies has marked the beginning of a new era in the production of genomic data. This still ongoing technological revolution has greatly dropped down the cost of DNA sequencing and made the sequencing of an increasing number of genomes both feasible and cost effective.

The Sanger produced long reads are now replaced by hundreds of millions of short reads or pairs of short reads. Accordingly, the new sequencing technologies have complicated the storage and analysis of the sequencing data and the assembly of genomes.

The aim of this research project is to exploit a specific type of sequencing data, the paired-end data, in such a way to develop a bioinformatic pipeline useful for genome assembly validation, genome scaffolding and structural variation discovery
