We are an interdisciplinary team of Cambridge PhD students who are passionate about applying DNA sequencing methods to solve environmental challenges

Our task force combines knowledge and experience from various life science backgrounds with the curiosity to learn about and share experiences with cutting-edge portable DNA sequencing technology.

PuntSeq's expertise involves Arduino equipment handling, biological laboratory work, DNA sequencing, microbiology and bioinformatic analyses. In 2017, we received an OpenPlant grant and Public Engagement starter fund by the University of Cambridge, which allowed us to acquire our MinION and to undertake preliminary tests...
