OGMP - Team and Megasequencing Unit
Team and Advisory Board
The original Team who submitted the
initial OGMP grant proposal in 1991 consisted of seven scientists
Advisory Board members are:
- Michael W.
Gray (Scientific Coordinator), Dalhousie University;
- B. Franz
Lang (Administrative Coordinator), Université de Montréal;
Burger (Director of Megasequencing Unit), Université de Montréal;
- Claude Lemieux, Université de Laval
- Monique Turmel, Université de Laval
- Brian Golding, McMaster University
- David Sankoff, University of Ottawa
- Tim Littlejohn, BioLateral Group, Sydney (Australia)
- Charles J.(Charley) O'Kelly
The mission of the Advisory Board is to assist the Team in resolving
scientific, strategic and policy questions related to the efficient operation
of the OGMP; to aid in data analysis and publication; and to initiate and
participate in spin-off projects emerging from OGMP data. Team members
decide on the sequencing projects to be undertaken and their relative priorities.
They provide the starting material (purified organellar DNAs) and perform
an in-depth analyis of the sequence data, according to the specific expertise
of individual Team members.
The Sequencing Unit
The Sequencing Unit consists of two divisions:
- The Molecular Biology Division, which
generates the primary sequence data and develops new sequencing technologies;
- The Informatics Division, where informatics
tools for genomic sequence analysis, sequencing project management,
and biological databases are developed and implemented.
The Unit is managed by G. Burger,
who also coordinates the OGMP collaboration.
