GENOME CENTER OVERVIEW
The Institute houses a variety of quasi-independent laboratories, each with its own unique research objective(s). Each laboratory develops its particular protocols and manages materials and equipment. Laboratories operate under the direction of a Principal Investigator or team of Investigators and assignments are made within the research team based on areas of expertise and overall objectives of the lab. The HudsonAlpha Genome Sequencing Center (www.hagsc.org) is a not-for-profit research group focusing on the generation of high quality plant and fungal genomic resources for the scientific community. It specializes in eukaryotic whole genome sequence, assembly, and analysis together with improvement or finishing of complex eukaryotic genomes.
A successful Computational Biologist should be able to address complex scientific questions using next generation sequencing technologies by applying a combination of computational and biological expertise. The candidate should be able to assist in designing experiments that address the problem at hand and then take the resultant data and design/apply computational methods that specifically address problems related to functional plant genomics.
