My main goal in the workgroup is in helping to deal with large-scale analysis using different workflows and cluster computers. We mainly use BLAST program to compare different plant roots and organism sequences. In collaboration with other workgroup members we have managed to create workflow to analyze 454 sequence data.

Addition to above, I also help to develop database "EcoBank", which contains various metadata and holds information about samples gathered all over the world. Database is developed in the fashion, that it would be easy to make flexible search engine on it. 

During my PhD studies I developed a workflow and a pipeline to analyse sequence data from Illumina sequencing platform and how it compares with other sequencing platforms like 454 sequencing. My doctoral thesis was supervised by PhD Maarja Öpik and Prof. J. Peter W. Young.
