CBB Sequencing Grants

We invite applications for CBB Sequencing grants for the ecological application of next generation amplicon sequencing methods, specifically metabarcoding of vertebrate, invertebrate, plant, fungal and microbial community targets. Each sequencing grant supports collaboration with Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research sequencing facility and includes 1x Illumina Miseq V3 300×2 bp run, sequencing library preparation (if required) and quality control and a consultation service on the project (if required). Applicants must be a member of CBB (students please apply via your supervisor). Applications close 5pm Friday 17 May 2024 or when funding is exhausted.
