The marine environment is one of the most important sources for microbial biodiversity on the planet. These microbes are drivers for many biogeochemical processes, and their enormous genetic potential is still not fully explored or exploited. Marine metagenomics (DNA shotgun sequencing), not only offers opportunities for studying structure and function of microbial communities, but also identification of novel biocatalysts and bioactive compounds. However, data analysis, management, storage… 
The metagenomic data life-cycle: standards and best practices
TLDR
An overview of the landscape of data standards available for the description of essential steps in metagenomics has been mapped, proposing best practice as a foundation for a community standard to enable reproducibility and better sharing of meetagenomics datasets, leading ultimately to greater meetingagenomics data reuse and repurposing.
ELIXIR pilot action: Marine metagenomics – towards a domain
Metagenomics, the study of genetic material recovered directly from environmental samples, has the potential to provide insight into the structure and function of heterogeneous microbial communities.
ELIXIR pilot action: Marine metagenomics – towards a domain specific set of sustainable services
TLDR
This ELIXIR pilot action was motivated by the need to establish dedicated data resources and harmonized metagenomics pipelines for the marine domain, in order to enhance the exploration and exploitation of marine genetic resources.

TLDR
This work engineered the model diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum to produce the high-value heterologous monoterpenoid geraniol, which, besides applications as fragrance and insect repellent, is a key intermediate of high- value pharmaceuticals, and confirmed the suitability of episomes for synthetic biology applications and identified superior gerAniol-yielding strains following random integration.
A Data Management Model For Large-Scale Bioinformatics Analysis
TLDR
This dissertation examines the challenge of data management, particularly how existing bioinformatics analysis pipelines can reduce the runtime and hence the cost of analysis through a better data management approach, and provides the file-based distributed data materialization (FDDM) approach and realizes it as the GeStore system to provide data management for real-world bio informatics pipelines.
Norwegian e-Infrastructure for Life Sciences (NeLS)
TLDR
The architecture of NeLS is outlined and possible directions for further development are discussed, which integrates national e-infrastructure storage and computing resources, and is also integrated with the SEEK platform in order to store large data files produced by experiments described in SEEK.
