Geobiology of Sulfur Bacteria

Abstract: 

Geobiology of Sulfur Bacteria

The activities of microorganisms have a profound influence on geological processes, such as the formation and dissolution of minerals and rocks. This lab primarily investigates the influences of sulfur bacteria on the geochemistry of marine systems and the precipitation and dissolution of certain minerals, some of which are of economic importance. These investigations require analysis of single-gene and whole-genome sequence data. The group's HPC usage is primarily focused on the assembly and analysis of several Illumina and PacBio sequence datasets that will be used to construct genomes and metagenomes for the organisms they study.

Analysis (DISABLED - will be removed on 12/22/17)

Note: Due to lack of use, this software module has been disabled and will be removed from MSI systems on 12/22/17. If you need this software, please contact help@msi.umn.edu . The analysis toolset is C++ software for evolutionary genetic analysis. Verision 0.8.4 is installed. The set of tools installed on the HPC clusters are: rsq : to summarize linkage disequilibrium in data compute : a "mini-DNAsp" for the Unix command-line kimura80 : o calculate divergence using Kimura's (1980) method gestimator : Ka/Ks by Comeron's method polydNdS : to analyze silent and replacement polymorphism...
