Identifying loci for regulation of RNA splicing in mice

Project Description
We have obtained deep RNA sequencing data from a panel of inbred mouse strains. The genome of these strains is well characterized, allowing fine mapping of loci involved in regulating gene expression. The project is to identify loci involved in splice site selection.

Required Experience
The more background in C, Perl and R, the better. Some knowledge of genetic mapping and splicing desirable.
