Main tasks in the project
NTU undertakes shotgun metagenomics associated with WP4. This work involves extracting DNA from 1000–1200 faecal samples, assessing DNA quality and quantity, sending DNA for metagenomic sequencing, and downstream processing of metagenomic sequence data to deliver usable taxonomic and functional outputs for researchers in other WPs.
