J. Craig Venter Institute (“JCVI”), a dynamic non-profit scientific research organization is currently seeking summer interns specializing in Bioinformatics to work on the Arabidopsis Information Portal (www.araport.org). The project is funded by the National Science Foundation to provide public informatics resources to plant scientists who use the Arabidopsis genome data to inform their exploration of biology. Arabidopsis thaliana is a widely used as a model organism for the study of flowering plants. The plant's genome was previously sequenced and annotated and published by an international consortium that included JCVI. The Araport web site provides a genome browser, a data mining application, and a workspace where end users develop their own data services and visualization tools. JCVI is a non-profit institution with on-going basic research programs focused on many aspects of genome science.
