BS or MS in Computer Science or Bioinformatics. Strong programming
background in C++/C, Java, PHP and other web programming is required.
Working experience with relational database such as MySQL 5.0 is a plus.
Critical thinking, algorithm development and the ability to work
independently are a must.
A new bioinformatics lab is being set up with a current focus on data
production, integration and mining of Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) and
454 cDNA sequence reads. Your responsibility will include development of
integrated databases, associated data processing pipelines and web-based
interfaces for ConiferGDB ([Only registered users see links. ]) by developing and
applying various computational tools. ConiferGDB is aimed to allow
in-depth mining of all cDNA sequence features including protein-coding
domains, 3’ and 5’ untranslated regions (UTRs), simple sequence repeats
(SSRs), single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), polyadenylation signals,
putative miRNAs and their targets, splice variants and so on. In
addition, you need to be versatile to deal with issues related with
system administration and database management.
