“The goal is to turn data into information, and information into insight.”
This online resource gives an overview of the information, data and results generated by the PuntSeq team. Learn all about the outcomes of our citizen science project and get some personal hands on time with our data and analysis workflows.
Access our generated sequencing data, follow our experimental workflow and bioinformatic pipelines to unravel the hidden bacterial complexity of the Cam microbiome or simply use our resources to learn how to design and analyse your own metagenomics study using Nanopore sequencing.
Microbiome of the Cam
We have summarised all data and publish all our findings
in the scientific publication:
"Freshwater monitoring by nanopore sequencing"
In addition, you can access our analysis and code on GitHub
We continuously aim to share our findings and knowledge with the wider society to inform citizens about open doubts relating to water quality and bacterial composition of the river that fuels our city’s life as well as to train people on using the cutting-edge sequencing technology
2017 - 2019
Until today we have been able to presented our research to the broader scientific community at four local, two national and two international conferences with more to come.
Talks & Events
We have presented our research to the public in a series of pub talks as well as several open seminars. If you are interested in becoming engaged with the project, just join us at one of our upcoming events
