Peter is a 3rd year Advance Science student who worked in the lab in January-February 2017 on the Summer Vacation Research Scholarship (SVRS). Peter was working on a bacterial sequencing project in collaboration with Mike Manefield at UNSW. We have successfully used PacBio sequencing to fully and contiguously assemble the genome of a new bacterial strain from a mixed culture. Peter’s project was analysing assembled contigs from other organisms in the culture.
Peter is undertaking a double major of molecular and cell biology and microbiology at UNSW.
