Abstract

This project is for storage and analysis of next-gen sequencing data from several ongoing projects related to population genomics of bees. The project is funded by several grants from formas and VR and a SciLifeLab national project (among others). It includes long-read genome assembly projects and population sequencing projects using short-read libraries from several bee species. It contains a large database of sequences obtained over the past 10 years that are actively used, and we plan to add thousands of new genome sequences, mainly through use of sequencing at SciLifeLab.
