About

Welcome to my blog on Biology, sequencing, bioinformatics and more. I’ll post snippets of codes, ideas, perhaps discuss a paper or two, or write about anything else that I want to get off my chest. Basically, anything that happens ‘In between lines of code’…

My name is Lex Nederbragt and I work at the University of Oslo at the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES). My salary actually comes from the Norwegian Sequencing Centre (NSC, http://www.sequencing.uio.no), a HTS (or NGS) sequencing provider of which CEES is one of the two hosts.

Research wise, I am interested in de novo genome assembly (e.g. for the cod genome project), and using genomes for evolutionary studies. For my bioinformatics work, I mainly use perl, awk, and sed and am just starting to learn python. Oh, and I am a MAC person…

On my other blog, I present a kind of manual for the newbler program from 454 Life Science. Newbler is written for de novo assemblies of 454 pyrosequencing data. On this blog, I might share some tricks and tips related to working with 454 data and newbler assemblies.

Finally, you might know me from the internet under my pseudonym flxlex.
