Description: 

Basic questions on bacterial genome organization and evolution could not be addressed before the complete sequencing of two bacterial genomes. Today’s opportunities from the large number of available genomes reach much further and puts comparative genomics central in deducing patterns in genome evolution. Within this project we suggest building a bioinformatics toolbox that will allow us to formulate models on prokaryotic genome evolution on the one hand and to create a genomic taxonomy for prokaryotes in collaboration with the Centre for Molecular Phylogeny & Evolution on the other hand.
