    • Analysis of sequencing data in environmental genomics. Exploring the diversity of the microbial biosphere 

      Lanzén, Anders (The University of Bergen, 2013-04-12)
      Most life on this planet is microbial and for the last two decades, environmental genomics has contributed to reveal an impressive biodiversity of this microbial life. This approach applies DNA sequencing to environmental ...

    • Characterization of the 18s rRNA gene for designing universal eukaryote specific primers 

      Hadziavdic, Kenan; Lekang, Katrine; Lanzén, Anders; Jonassen, Inge; Thompson, Eric; Troedsson, Christofer (PLoS, 2014-02-07)
      High throughput sequencing technology has great promise for biodiversity studies. However, an underlying assumption is that the primers used in these studies are universal for the prokaryotic or eukaryotic groups of ...

    • CREST – Classification Resources for Environmental Sequence Tags 

      Lanzén, Anders; Jørgensen, Steffen Leth; Huson, Daniel H.; Gorfer, Markus; Grindhaug, Svenn Helge; Jonassen, Inge; Øvreås, Lise; Urich, Tim (Public Library of Science, 2012-11-08)
      Sequencing of taxonomic or phylogenetic markers is becoming a fast and efficient method for studying environmental microbial communities. This has resulted in a steadily growing collection of marker sequences, most notably ...

    • High-throughput metabarcoding of eukaryotic diversity for environmental monitoring of offshore oil-drilling activities 

      Lanzén, Anders; Lekang, Katrine; Jonassen, Inge; Thompson, Eric; Troedsson, Christofer (Wiley, 2016-09)
      As global exploitation of available resources increases, operations extend towards sensitive and previously protected ecosystems. It is important to monitor such areas in order to detect, understand and remediate environmental ...

    • Metagenomic analysis of ammonia-oxidizing archaea affiliated with the soil group 

      Bartossek, Rita; Spang, Anja; Weidler, Gerhard; Lanzén, Anders; Schleper, Christa Maria (Frontiers, 2012-06-20)
      Ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) have recently been recognized as a significant compo- nent of many microbial communities and represent one of the most abundant prokaryotic groups in the biosphere. H owever, only few ...

    • Novel and Unexpected Microbial Diversity in Acid Mine Drainage in Svalbard (78° N), Revealed by Culture-Independent Approaches 

      Garcia-Moyano, Antonio; Austnes, Andreas Erling; Lanzén, Anders; Gonzalez-Toril, Elena; Aguilera, Ángeles; Øvreås, Lise (MDPI - Open Access Publishing, 2015-10-13)
      Svalbard, situated in the high Arctic, is an important past and present coal mining area. Dozens of abandoned waste rock piles can be found in the proximity of Longyearbyen. This environment offers a unique opportunity for ...

    • Removing Noise From Pyrosequenced Amplicons 

      Quince, Christopher; Lanzén, Anders; Davenport, Russell J.; Turnbaugh, Peter J. (BioMed Central, 2011-01-28)
      Background: In many environmental genomics applications a homologous region of DNA from a diverse sample is first amplified by PCR and then sequenced. The next generation sequencing technology, 454 pyrosequencing, has ...

    • Simultaneous Assessment of Soil Microbial Community Structure and Function through Analysis of the Meta-Transcriptome 

      Urich, Tim; Lanzén, Anders; Qi, Ji; Huson, Daniel H.; Schleper, Christa Maria; Schuster, Stephan C. (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2008-06-25)
      Background: Soil ecosystems harbor the most complex prokaryotic and eukaryotic microbial communities on Earth. Experimental approaches studying these systems usually focus on either the soil community’s taxonomic structure ...
