Project Start Date: Winter 2014
Project Title: Analysis of Single Nucleotide Variants in RNA-Seq Data
Project Contact: Xinshu (Grace) Xiao <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Our lab handles a large amount of high-throughput sequencing data of different types from the ENCODE and other large projects. With these data, we routinely analyze gene expression, alternative splicing, expressed polymorphisms, RNA editing and protein-RNA interaction. This project will develop methods for analyzing RNA-Seq data and measuring expression of single nucleotide variants.
Required Experience: Experience with programming in Pyton, Perl, C, C++, or Java etc, some background knowledge of high throughput sequencing. Basic knowledge in biology will be a plus
Possibility of Funding : Yes
