I am looking for collaboration or a guide to a funder for my project on exploration of microbial communities from unique ecologies using metagenomics (using next generation sequencing platforms, i.e. PacBio and/or Illumina) to:
- Describe microbial diversity in selected ecologies
- Generate microbial metabarcodes for forensic analysis (protect from biopyracy)
- Use predictive bioinfomatics to narrow on microbes with potential to produce novel enzymes and natural products (Biologics)
I sincerely need your assistance to actualise this project. I believe it will make great impact on policy and biotechnology.
