Hello world, this is me!

 

Ellow peeps, I’m Lesley.
I ‘m a former BASc Biochemistry and MSc bio-informatics student from the Netherlands. Recently finished PhD in both dry-lab and wet-lab at the Bio-Protection Research Centre and AgResearch in New Zealand .

I worked on finding a correlation between horizontal gene transfer and virulence/survival of several Serratia isolates using next-generation sequencing data and bioinformatics analysis. Currently looking for a new opportunity.

My interests in regards to bio-informatics lie in NGS data, genome assembly, genotyping, comparative genomics, GWAS. But i’m also still very much a microbiologist/molecular biologists that likes to get his hands dirty, with a great interest in microscopy and TEM related techniques.
