KOREA Curations of Antartic METeorities

Antarctic Functional Genomics Project

The Antarctic functional genomics project was founded in 2011 at the Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI) to understanding the function of genes and other parts of the genome in polar organism for elucidating adaptation and evolution. Our current research activities include the whole genome sequencing of Antarctic fish (Notothenia coriiceps), and second generation sequencing of various Antarctic biota, functional genomics, comparative genomics and bacterial metagenomic populations.
