The Earth BioGenome Project Norway is Hiring

At the Department of Informatics, University of Bergen, Norway, there is a vacancy for a postdoctoral research fellow position within Informatics – Bioinformatics.

The position is for a fixed term of 4 years and is connected to the project Earth Biogenome Project Norge (EBP-Nor, A Norwegian BioGenome initiative: the initial Launch phase), financed by the Research Council of Norway.

New insights into genome evolution and parasitism - the salmon louse genome delivers

We are happy to announce that we have finally published a peer-reviewed research paper describing the Atlantic salmon louse genome in Genomics.
Even though copepods have many ecological roles and interest is on the rise, they are still not that well-represented in genome databases. The same is true for parasites, especially the marine species. The LSalAtl2s assembly has a size of 695.4 Mbp (million base pairs of DNA) and we have annotated 13,081 protein-coding genes.
