Genome and transcriptome assembly
Zhilliang has a keen interest in genome and transcriptome assembly projects and has worked with sequence data from multiple platforms. She has been responsible for the genome assembly of the Myrtle rust genome as well as Lactobacillus rhamnosus. Zhilliang has also worked on de novo assembly of the transcriptome of Teleogryllus commodus and koala. She is currently involved in the multi-centre Koala genome assembly using PacBio sequence data (link to project from home page).
