Genomics and Proteomics


Ongoing research:

    Second generation sequencing:


    • Member of the NXTGNT executive committee. NXTGNT is a service facility which makes 2 second generation sequencing technologies (Illumina GAIIx and Roche GS FLX) available for research projects.

    • Focus on second generation sequencing related bio-informatics with extensive experience in (hybrid) de novo assembly. The hybrid de novo assembly uses data from the 2 technologies to achieve a better and a cheaper assembly then when using data from only one of the technologies

    • Numerous next generation sequencing projects are ongoing in the field of forensics, medical genetics, pharmacogenetics, plant genetics, etc.
