02/Dec/2015 EMBnet welcomes his new Editorial Assistant: Antonio Santovito

It all began this summer when my sister sent me a link, “Why don’t you apply?” Months later, an invite for a Skype interview rattled my inbox. “Go to lunch, we want you at your best”, someone wrote me before that call started on time that afternoon. “Hello, nice to meet you”, said a voice from my computer..

 

Two months have passed since the day I met the EMBnet Editorial Board for the first time, and I am now the new Editorial Assistant. I am an Italian communicator, a media studies student and the owner of Creactive, my communication and marketing business. After a decade as a Web designer, almost two years as a journalist, and three as a contributor for an advertising agency, my experience with EMBnet began and it has been engaging since the first day. Working with a non-profit is an honour and also a pleasure for me because it’s related to another of my favourite topics: Sciences.

 

I had confirmation that this would be an amazing job when I met Domenica D’Elia in Bari, Italy. She welcomed me in the best way, and we began working together with some media content. Meanwhile, the meetings with the Editorial Board were becoming more and more interesting. All is proceeding with one eye on the past and the other to the future, solving some technical issues with old publications, while making plans for the journal’s promotion, including a new journal logo and a new layout, both for print and Web.

 

I know the EMBnet Journal Editorial Board is giving me a very important opportunity. Honestly, it daily fills my inbox with hundreds of conversations with scientists from all over the world, each with his personality, opinions and questions to monitor, manage and answer. I have to admit that sometimes these interactions could be very funny - my expectations have been more than satisfied. I will do my best to keep working with such a great network. So it’s now my turn to say to you, “Hello, nice to meet you”.

02/Sep/2015 Postdoc position: Bioinformatic analysis of host/parasite interactions‏, Strastbourg (FR).

Where: Inserm U963, Institute for Molecular and Cellular Biology (IBMC), Strasbourg, France
Contract: Postdoc, 2 years with extension possibilities
Start date: from October 2015

Context:
The ability of a mosquito to transmit malaria parasites is determined by different factors: (1) mosquito genetic factors that control resistance, (2) parasite genetic factors that control virulence, and (3) diverse environmental factors such as the mosquito midgut microbiota, immune status of the gametocyte carrier on which the mosquito fed, etc. In the mosquito vector Anopheles gambiae, we have already shown that polymorphisms at the TEP1 locus, encoding a key antiparasitic gene, contribute to determine mosquito resistance to rodent malaria parasites. Recently, the group of C. Barillas-Mury has demonstrated that the Plasmodium falciparum Pfs47 surface protein allows P. falciparum to by-pass the mosquito TEP1-dependent antiparasitic response, and that interactions between mosquito TEP1 genotype and parasite Pfs47 genotype are important to determine the outcome of an infection. We aim to identify novel genetic and environmental factors controlling the outcome of parasite infection in mosquitoes. For this, we have genetically selected a number of mosquito lines that are resistant and susceptible to malaria parasites, and we screen for parasite virulence factors using unbiased approaches. The identification of novel factors is based on high throughput sequencing of genomes and transcriptomes of the different interacting organisms.

Project:
Using bioinformatics, genetics and statistical approaches, the postdoctoral fellow will be in charge of the identification of novel candidate genes controlling mosquito resistance and parasite virulence, as well as novel environmental factors that affect the outcome of an infection.
Candidate genes and environmental factors will be validated in the laboratory and the correlation between polymorphisms in these genes and infection intensity will be assessed in laboratory crosses and in field mosquitoes collected in Africa.

Candidate profile:
We are seeking for enthusiastic candidates with a background in bioinformatics, and/or in genetics or population genetics. A good grasp of statistics is required. Candidates should have obtained their PhD no longer than 3 years ago.

Laboratory:
The Anopheles group is part of CNRS unit “Immune Responses and Development in Insects” whose former director, Prof. Jules Hoffmann, received the 2011 Nobel Prize in Medicine. It belongs to several international collaborative networks and receives funding from the ERC, the Labex ParaFrap, Sanofi and from Inserm, CNRS and the University of Strasbourg. Strasbourg is located in the heart of Europe and offers multiple cultural and sportive opportunities.

22/Aug/2015 Kicking off groundbreaking Africa-EU partnership in biomedical sciences: Foundation of a global research infrastructure for biobanking

Press Release
Uppsala, 21.08.2015

The University of the Western Cape, Cape Town (South Africa) is hosting the first meeting of the newly launched project “B3Africa - Bridging Biobanking and Biomedical Research across Europe and Africa” on 24-25 August 2015.

The rapidly evolving African biobanks are invaluable for biomedical research because the African population has the greatest genomic diversity on the planet and represents an incredible resource of information to advance fundamental understanding of health and disease.

We have no time to lose”, says Alan Christoffels, from the University of the Western Cape and the South African National Bioinformatics Institute. “Connecting bio-resources from Africa and Europe and providing adequate technology will revolutionise how we perform research. The easy-to-use technical solutions will allow the participation of research from different regions regardless the level of development and networking capabilities. It will make possible to include many research institutions as equal partners in the global effort to improve health and wellbeing”.

Eleven partners from African and European countries will jointly develop a collaboration framework and an informatics infrastructure that will accelerate and facilitate biomedical research across the continents to address global health challenges together. Via the Horizon 2020 work programme the European Commission provides a budget of ~ 2 Million Euro over the period of 3 years for the B3Africa initiative that involves a highly motivated group that is ready to get to work.

Biological specimens have been collected for decades, but only since the late 1990s have biobanks been established in a more systematic way. Biobanks collect and store a variety of (mostly human) samples from tissue, cells, blood, saliva, plasma, or DNA. These samples are essential in biomedical research to understand disease mechanisms and develop new therapies.

Access to high quality biological samples is the number one requirement to advance biomedical research. The technology exists”, explains Jan-Eric Litton, one of the initiators of the European Biobanking infrastructure BBMRI-ERIC, “but policymakers will have to learn to view biological samples as key raw material for 21st century medical science.

B3Africa has two strategic aims:
1. Create a harmonised ethical and legal framework between European and African partner institutions: A common ethical and legal framework is essential for a trustable informatics platform that will allow sharing bio-resources and data and also consolidate the Africa-EU biobank cooperation.
2. Provide an “out-of-the-box” informatics solution that facilitates data management, processing and sharing and can also be used under challenging networking conditions in Africa and Europe.

Partners in B3Africa are:
- Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet (SLU),
- Biobanking and Biomolecular Resources Research Infrastructure Consortium (BBMRI-ERIC),
- Karolinska Institutet (KI),
- Centre for Research Ethics & Bioethics (CRB) at Uppsala University,
- University of the Western Cape (UWC),
- Makerere University (MAK),

20/Aug/2015 COST SeqAhead: Researchers publish article on workflows for automating data-intensive bioinformatics
High-throughput technologies, such as next-generation sequencing, have turned molecular biology into a data-intensive discipline, requiring bioinformaticians to use high-performance computing resources and carry out data management and analysis tasks on large scale.
 
Workflow systems can be useful to simplify construction of analysis pipelines that automate tasks, support reproducibility and provide measures for fault-tolerance. However, workflow systems can incur significant development and administration overhead so bioinformatics pipelines are often still built without them.
 
We present the experiences with workflows and workflow systems within the bioinformatics community participating in a series of hackathons and workshops of the EU COST action SeqAhead.
 
The organizations are working on similar problems, but we have addressed them with different strategies and solutions. This fragmentation of efforts is inefficient and leads to redundant and incompatible solutions. Based on our experiences we define a set of recommendations for future systems to enable efficient yet simple bioinformatics workflow construction and execution.

High-throughput technologies, such as next-generation sequencing, have turned molecular biology into a data-intensive discipline, requiring bioinformaticians to use high-performance computing resources and carry out data management and analysis tasks on large scale.
 
Workflow systems can be useful to simplify construction of analysis pipelines that automate tasks, support reproducibility and provide measures for fault-tolerance. However, workflow systems can incur significant development and administration overhead so bioinformatics pipelines are often still built without them.
 
We present the experiences with workflows and workflow systems within the bioinformatics community participating in a series of hackathons and workshops of the EU COST action SeqAhead.
 
The organizations are working on similar problems, but we have addressed them with different strategies and solutions. This fragmentation of efforts is inefficient and leads to redundant and incompatible solutions. Based on our experiences we define a set of recommendations for future systems to enable efficient yet simple bioinformatics workflow construction and execution.

24/Jul/2015 Post-Doc Positions in Bioinformatics/Biostatistics in the Conesa Lab at the University of Florida, USA

 

The Conesa lab is a multidisciplinary team composed of molecular biologists, biosatisticians and computational biologists. Our group is interested in the development of computational approaches for the analysis and integration of functional genomics data. We have developed numerous bioinformatics tools such as Blast2GO, maSigPro, NOISeq, Paintomics, etc.

The Conesa lab at the University of Florida in Gainesville is seeking enthusiastic postdocs to join two online pokies casino recently awarded projects. The first project will integrate different sources of omics and clinical data to find determinants of Type I Diabetes in children. The second project will develop a highly curated pathway database in Citrus to study and treat citrus greening infections.

The ideal candidates will have a PhD in bioinformatics or biostatistics, and have experience with data analysis of omics data (gene expression, metabolomics, transcriptomics, metagenomics) and pathway analysis. Experience with R programming and a strong background in statistics is necessary for the Type I Diabetes project, while knowledge in functional annotation and database design is necessary for the Citrus project. Candidates should be able to work independently while collaborating with other project members, and have excellent English writing skills. We offer work in a dynamic multidisciplinary team, immediate incorporation, a 1+1 year contract and a competitive salary.

25/Jun/2015 Post-Doc position in Bioinformatics at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna (AT)

We are looking for enthusiastic bioinformatics postdocs who would like to build and advance their career in computational biology and biomedical research. Our lab is based at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna. It combines advanced technologies (epigenomics, single-cell sequencing, drug screening, mass spectrometry, etc.) with a deep interest in computational modeling and relevant clinical collaborations. Our goal is to advance cancer therapy through truly systems-level research focusing on the cancer epigenome.

The Candidate

We are looking for highly motivated and academically outstanding candidates who want to pursue a scientific career in the field of com- putational and medical epigenomics. An ideal candidate would have a background in the computational sciences (bioinformatics, statistics, physics, engineering, etc.) and some prior experience with collaborative research in high-throughput biology. We will also consider appli- cants with a background in molecular biology (including functional genomics, chemical biology, human genetics, molecular medicine, etc.) who have strong quantitative skills and/or a research interest that would fit well with a systems medicine environment.

The Lab (http://www.medical-epigenomics.org/)
The Medical Epigenomics Lab at CeMM combines large-scale epigenome analysis with stem cell biology and computational modeling, in order to better understand and treat cancer and other diseases. We collaborate with biologists and clinicians at the Medical University of Vienna and internationally, aiming to advance precision medicine through technological innovation. Specific research interests include:

  • Epigenomics. We perform large-scale epigenome mapping in order to dissect the dynamics of cancer development and emerging drug resistance. This work is part of the European BLUEPRINT project and the International Human Epigenome Consortium.

  • Technology. Exciting biomedical research is often driven by new technologies. Our lab is therefore heavily invested into technology development, including single-cell protocols, nanopore sequencing, CRISPR, and epigenome editing.

  • Bioinformatics. New algorithms and advanced computational methods allow us to accurately infer epigenetic cell states from large-scale datasets, in order to reconstruct the epigenetic landscape that controls cellular differentiation and reprogramming.

  • Diagnostics. Using large-scale DNA methylation mapping, bioinformatic prioritization, and functional characterization, we strive to develop clinically relevant biomarkers for informing personalized cancer therapy.

    The Project

    The lab is driven by the ideas of all its members. If you already have a project in mind, we would like to hear from you. If not, here are a few topics for inspiration: (i) Why is leukemia a disease of the elderly? Can we identify an “epigenetic clock” that counts down toward leukemia? What is wrong with this clock in those rare cases of childhood leukemia? (ii) Can we construct a blood cancer from scratch, by inducing only epigenetic defects? Which combination of pathways provides the minimum core of an epigenetic leukemia? (iii) How can we make epigenome data useful for personalized medicine? Every physician uses Google – can we build a “Google for the epigenome”?

    The Principal Investigator (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=9qSsTcIAAAAJ)
    Christoph Bock is a bioinformatician and epigenomics researcher. He is a principal investigator and head of the Medical Epigenomics La- boratory at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. He is also guest professor at the
    Medical University of Vienna’s Department for Laboratory Medicine, scientific coordinator of the Biomedical Sequencing Facility at CeMM, and adjunct group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics. Christoph graduated summa cum laude at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and Saarland University with a PhD thesis on computational epigenetics. Subsequently, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard before joining CeMM in 2012. Christoph Bock is a 2009 recipient of the Otto Hahn Medal by the Max Planck Society and a 2014 recipient of the New Frontier Group award of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. He leads Genom Austria, which is the Austrian contribution to the International Network of Personal Genome Projects. He is also a member of the European BLUEPRINT project and contributes to the work of the International Human Epigenome Consortium to map 1,000 reference epigenomes.

    The Institute (http://www.cemm.at/)
    The CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine is an international and interdisciplinary research institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Driven by medical needs, CeMM integrates basic research and medical expertise to pursue innovative diagnostic and therapeutic approaches focused on cancer, inflammation, and immune disorders. CeMM is located in a new building at the center of one of the largest medical campuses in Europe
    , within walking distance of Vienna’s historical city center. According to a study by “The Scientist”, CeMM is among the top-5 best places to work in academia world-wide (http://the-scientist.com/2012/08/01/best-places-to-work-academia- 2012). Vienna is frequently ranked the world’s best city to live. It is a United Nations city with a large English-speaking community. The official language at CeMM is English, and more than 30 different nationalities are represented at the institute.

    Please submit cover letter, curriculum vitae, academic transcripts and contact details of three referees to application@cemm.at. Applica- tions will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and any application received by 10 July 2015 will be considered. Start dates are very flexible. Please feel free to contact Christoph Bock directly in case you have specific questions e.g. about scientific topics and project ideas.

Our goal is to advance cancer therapy through truly systems-level research focusing on the cancer epigenome.

The Candidate

We are looking for highly motivated and academically outstanding candidates who want to pursue a scientific career in the field of com- putational and medical epigenomics. An ideal candidate would have a background in the computational sciences (bioinformatics, statistics, physics, engineering, etc.) and some prior experience with collaborative research in high-throughput biology. We will also consider appli- cants with a background in molecular biology (including functional genomics, chemical biology, human genetics, molecular medicine, etc.) who have strong quantitative skills and/or a research interest that would fit well with a systems medicine environment.

The Lab (http://www.medical-epigenomics.org/)
The Medical Epigenomics Lab at CeMM combines large-scale epigenome analysis with stem cell biology and computational modeling, in order to better understand and treat cancer and other diseases. We collaborate with biologists and clinicians at the Medical University of Vienna and internationally, aiming to advance precision medicine through technological innovation. Specific research interests include:

  • Epigenomics. We perform large-scale epigenome mapping in order to dissect the dynamics of cancer development and emerging drug resistance. This work is part of the European BLUEPRINT project and the International Human Epigenome Consortium.

  • Technology. Exciting biomedical research is often driven by new technologies. Our lab is therefore heavily invested into technology development, including single-cell protocols, nanopore sequencing, CRISPR, and epigenome editing.

  • Bioinformatics. New algorithms and advanced computational methods allow us to accurately infer epigenetic cell states from large-scale datasets, in order to reconstruct the epigenetic landscape that controls cellular differentiation and reprogramming.

  • Diagnostics. Using large-scale DNA methylation mapping, bioinformatic prioritization, and functional characterization, we strive to develop clinically relevant biomarkers for informing personalized cancer therapy.

    The Project

    The lab is driven by the ideas of all its members. If you already have a project in mind, we would like to hear from you. If not, here are a few topics for inspiration: (i) Why is leukemia a disease of the elderly? Can we identify an “epigenetic clock” that counts down toward leukemia? What is wrong with this clock in those rare cases of childhood leukemia? (ii) Can we construct a blood cancer from scratch, by inducing only epigenetic defects? Which combination of pathways provides the minimum core of an epigenetic leukemia? (iii) How can we make epigenome data useful for personalized medicine? Every physician uses Google – can we build a “Google for the epigenome”?

24/Mar/2015 PhD Scholarship in Computational Genomics and Transcriptional Regulation at University of Copenhagen (DK)

A 3-year PhD Scholarship is available for a highly motivated candidate in the lab of Dr. Robin Andersson in the Section for Computational and RNA Biology, Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. The successful candidate is expected to start in June 2015. 

Context

The Andersson lab is a newly started research group funded by the European Research Council (Horizon 2020). The group focuses on genomics and computational/statistical modeling of transcriptional regulation based on large-scale sequencing data, including experimental data generated from within the lab and data from the FANTOM consortium. We aim to characterize and better understand the architectures and complexities of transcriptional regulation (see e.g. Andersson et al. 2014, Nature, http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nature12787) and gain insights into the mechanisms of regulation. We further focus on the fundamental properties of enhancers and promoters (see Andersson 2015, BioEssays, http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/bies.201400162) as well as the biogenesis and characteristics of enhancer RNAs (see e.g. Andersson et al. 2014, Nat Comms, http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/ncomms6336). For more information, see http://anderssonlab.org. 

The lab is based in a highly collaborative environment in the Bioinformatics Centre in the Section for Computational and RNA Biology, which is currently composed of 11 strong research groups. The Department of Biology is located at the Biocenter in central Copenhagen, Denmark.

Projects
The successful candidate is expected to work on projects related, but not limited, to:
1) computational modeling of enhancer regulation and genome-wide mapping of enhancer architectures;
2) systematical characterization of these architectures based on large-sale sequencing data and sequence analysis in order to understand what determines their spatio-temporal activity;
3) assessment of the extent and impact of individual variation and genetic variants in regulatory architectures in order to understand their importance, stochasticity and robustness.

Application deadline: April 13th, 2015

We further focus on the fundamental properties of enhancers and promoters (see Andersson 2015, BioEssays, http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/bies.201400162) as well as the biogenesis and characteristics of enhancer RNAs (see e.g. Andersson et al. 2014, Nat Comms, http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/ncomms6336). For more information, see http://anderssonlab.org. 

The lab is based in a highly collaborative environment in the Bioinformatics Centre in the Section for Computational and RNA Biology, which is currently composed of 11 strong research groups. The Department of Biology is located at the Biocenter in central Copenhagen, Denmark.

Projects
The successful candidate is expected to work on projects related, but not limited, to:
1) computational modeling of enhancer regulation and genome-wide mapping of enhancer architectures;
2) systematical characterization of these architectures based on large-sale sequencing data and sequence analysis in order to understand what determines their spatio-temporal activity;
3) assessment of the extent and impact of individual variation and genetic variants in regulatory architectures in order to understand their importance, stochasticity and robustness.

We further focus on the fundamental properties of enhancers and promoters (see Andersson 2015, BioEssays, http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/bies.201400162) as well as the biogenesis and characteristics of enhancer RNAs (see e.g. Andersson et al. 2014, Nat Comms, http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/ncomms6336). For more information, see http://anderssonlab.org. 

The lab is based in a highly collaborative environment in the Bioinformatics Centre in the Section for Computational and RNA Biology, which is currently composed of 11 strong research groups. The Department of Biology is located at the Biocenter in central Copenhagen, Denmark.

Projects
The successful candidate is expected to work on projects related, but not limited, to:
1) computational modeling of enhancer regulation and genome-wide mapping of enhancer architectures;
2) systematical characterization of these architectures based on large-sale sequencing data and sequence analysis in order to understand what determines their spatio-temporal activity;
3) assessment of the extent and impact of individual variation and genetic variants in regulatory architectures in order to understand their importance, stochasticity and robustness.

21/Mar/2015 Bioinformatics Post-Doc position in Plant Breeding and Genetic Enhancement at Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Sweden

The position is funded by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences’s Plant Breeding Platform

Since July 1 2014 a plant breeding platform has been implemented at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). Its mission is to promote an internal coordination of SLU’s resources and efforts in plant breeding for agriculture, forestry and horticulture, and includes research, basic education, infrastructure and outreach. It also works to strengthen SLU’s profile in plant breeding in relation to the outside world. Plant breeding is a discipline found in several of SLU’s departments and faculties and needs to be coordinated across different location and faculty boundaries. The plant breeding platform includes the Faculty of Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Crop Production Science, the Faculty of Forest Sciences and the Faculty of Natural Resources and Agricultural Science. A committee with two members from each faculty leads the coordination work. Special funds have been set aside for this venture. Each faculty will from 1 July 2015 have the main mentorship for a two-year postdoc position funded by the platform. The three postdoc projects have a clear across-faculty profile with assisting mentors at other faculties and with resources to promote SLU collaboration across campus- and faculty boundaries.

Duties:
Plants produce many thousands of compounds and an important task will be to try to link sequence information and proteins in the regulation of primary plant production and signaling as a response to the environment. An important activity will focus on stress resilience of potato in relation to dual infections by oomycetes and viruses. The postdoc will also perform comparative transcriptome analysis on the crop quinoa analyzing accessions with contrasting protein quantity and quality, as well as on grain tissues from oat genotypes with contrasting oil content. The successful candidate will be placed at the SLU campus in Alnarp and interact with plant researchers and other bioinformaticians, also at other SLU campuses. The person will also be connected to the network of PlantLink, a collaboration involving SLU and Lund University.

Qualifications:
Required for the position is a PhD. We are looking for a person who has experience of computational biology and preferably a background in plant molecular biology or genetics. The candidate should be familiar with some of the following subject areas: functional annotation, data integration, next-generation sequencing (NGS), proteomics and metabolomics. Knowledge of handling large-scale data, scripting languages (e.g. Perl, Python, R) and statistical methods is required. Documented experience of database handling and Unix system administration is favorable. The applicant must have excellent communication skills.

Place of work: Alnarp

Form of employment: Temporary employment 2 years

Extent: 100%

Starting date: 1 July 2015 or as soon as possible after this date

Application:
We welcome your application marked with Ref no. SLU ua 821/2015

The position is funded by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences’s Plant Breeding Platform

Since July 1 2014 a plant breeding platform has been implemented at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). Its mission is to promote an internal coordination of SLU’s resources and efforts in plant breeding for agriculture, forestry and horticulture, and includes research, basic education, infrastructure and outreach. It also works to strengthen SLU’s profile in plant breeding in relation to the outside world. Plant breeding is a discipline found in several of SLU’s departments and faculties and needs to be coordinated across different location and faculty boundaries. The plant breeding platform includes the Faculty of Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Crop Production Science, the Faculty of Forest Sciences and the Faculty of Natural Resources and Agricultural Science. A committee with two members from each faculty leads the coordination work. Special funds have been set aside for this venture. Each faculty will from 1 July 2015 have the main mentorship for a two-year postdoc position funded by the platform. The three postdoc projects have a clear across-faculty profile with assisting mentors at other faculties and with resources to promote SLU collaboration across campus- and faculty boundaries.

Duties:
Plants produce many thousands of compounds and an important task will be to try to link sequence information and proteins in the regulation of primary plant production and signaling as a response to the environment. An important activity will focus on stress resilience of potato in relation to dual infections by oomycetes and viruses. The postdoc will also perform comparative transcriptome analysis on the crop quinoa analyzing accessions with contrasting protein quantity and quality, as well as on grain tissues from oat genotypes with contrasting oil content. The successful candidate will be placed at the SLU campus in Alnarp and interact with plant researchers and other bioinformaticians, also at other SLU campuses. The person will also be connected to the network of PlantLink, a collaboration involving SLU and Lund University.

Qualifications:
Required for the position is a PhD. We are looking for a person who has experience of computational biology and preferably a background in plant molecular biology or genetics. The candidate should be familiar with some of the following subject areas: functional annotation, data integration, next-generation sequencing (NGS), proteomics and metabolomics. Knowledge of handling large-scale data, scripting languages (e.g. Perl, Python, R) and statistical methods is required.
