The successful candidate will initially mainly be involved in analysis of data relevant to two projects in the Agri Biotech field.
• The first project will generate genomic NGS data for 4 fungal races of the same species. The genomes have to be assembled and annotated. Comparative analysis between the four races will be part of the project in collaboration with the client.
• The second project entails transcriptome sequencing of wheat. RNA-seq data will be analyzed and differentially expressed genes be identified for our international collaborator
The candidate might also be requested to get involved in other projects running at CAF.
Successful applicants will be subject to University policies and procedures.
