Job: 2-year postdoctoral research assistant in statistical genetics

Dear All,

We are looking for a suitable candidate to develop new statistical methods and software for predicting the future performance of animals (e.g. milk yield etc.) based on their genetic traits. The main task will involve the development and extension of mixed effects models applied to Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs). The required candidate is expected to be familiar with these techniques and able to create models and software which will improve predictive performance. This post is part of a larger project which will likely lead to commercial opportunities.

Candidates must meet the following criteria:  Sigue leyendo

Course in Multi-omic Integrative Analysis of Gene Expression

http://bioinfo.cipf.es/aconesawp/?page_id=1560 :

Course in Multi-omic Integrative Analysis of Gene Expression

The Genomics of Gene Expression lab presents this course that aims to teach the students how to perform an integrative analysis of different omic data types in order to model the regulation of gene expression. To this end, we will first study in depth the pre-processing and statistical analysis of the different omic data types with a special focus on Next Generation Sequencing technologies such as RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, DNase-seq, and Methyl-seq, but also metabolomics or proteomics. Next, we will study several integration examples to cover different integration strategies. All these lectures will be complemented with hands-on sessions. R programming language will be mostly used. Finally, we will also have a longer practical session to recapitulate all the learned lessons by solving a real integration problem. For this last session, the students can analyze either their own data or the data provided by the organizers.  Sigue leyendo
