Bioinformatics is a critical component of data intensive research programmes and the SAGC Bioinformatics Platform collaborate extensively with SA researchers on a number of genomics projects. We have experience in projects including:
- Genome Assembly: We are heavily involved in the de novo assembly and annotation of a wide-range of species, including grapevine (Vitis vinifera), bread wheat (Triticum aestivum), rice (Oryza sativa subsp. Indica) and Plantago ovata
- Single cell sequencing projects: In conjunction with the SAGC’s Chromium 10X system, we are also developing workflows for the analysis of single-cell RNA-seq and ATAC-seq data.
