SynTax Award

We were pleased to hear of a recent SynTax award to support Magdalena Zarowiecki’s work on the Hymenolepis genome, together with Matt Berriman’s group at the Sanger Institute. This award will provide 9 months of bioinformatic training at a post-doctoral level, including initial assembly and annotation of the H. microstoma genome, development of custom scripts, and comparative and phylogenetic analyses of flatworms on a genome-wide scale.
