I finally got my Ph.D. You can find my thesis here.Written on February 22nd , 2018 by Bilgenur Baloglu
I defended about a month ago and finally got awarded my Ph.D. degree. It has been a wild journey but I am so happy to be where I am now.
My PhD thesis is on the bioassessment and monitoring of Singapore’s aquatic environments using Next Generation sequencing. It comprises of three main chapters looking into:
- Characterizing an insect outbreak that has economic and ecological implications for Singaporean society,
- A Nanopore MinION based DNA barcoding workflow for quick and cheap barcoding in the field, and
- Characterizing a species-rich tropical swamp forest with DNA barcoding, which led to discovery of ~350 new insect species.
You can find my thesis below. I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to your feedback on it.
