Environmental Microbial Genomics

Lars Hestbjerg Hansens Environmental Microbial Genomics group has the expertise to perform genomic and metagenomic studies in a highly customized manner using in-house high-throughput and full genome sequencing (Illumina and Nanopore sequencers) of pro- and eukaryotic organisms.

The group uses sequence-analysis based information to describe genomic traits of keystone species and their prevalence in natural and artificial microbial communities and metagenomes, including information on bacteriophages and how other mobile genetic elements shape microbial evolution and traits. Group activities span microbes in both natural, agricultural and health related systems.
