Abstract

This project is based on the data for my ERC consolidator project that examines the effect of feralisation on the methylome, genome and transcriptome of the chicken. We have a project currently (sll2017078), however this is a small account and we require more core hours for the computations. We currently have 15X coverage from over 300 chickens, with another 188 being sequenced shortly, plus transcriptomes from a further 2k birds arriving in early 2020 (using mainly the SciLife lab for data generation). We have been in contact with Anders Sjölander (from SNIC) who recommended that a medium account would be sufficient for our needs.
