    Bioinformatics Specialist Wanted

    The Nickels Lab at Rutgers University uses Next Generation Sequencing to study how gene expression is regulated at the level of transcription. Specific areas of interest include small RNA-mediated gene regulation and the regulation of transcription elongation and termination. We are seeking a talented Bioinformatics Specialist to join the lab.

    Your responsibilities will be two-fold:

    1. Design and implementation of strategies for the analysis of high throughput sequencing data in consultation with other lab members and according to the specific needs of their projects.

    2. Direct your own analyses of data to identify possible new areas of research, using your expertise in bioinformatics to develop new projects to advance laboratory goals.

    In addition to collaborating on multiple informatics-based projects, the ideal candidate will also conduct research that leads to independent presentations at meetings and first author publications.

    The ideal candidate will have a masters degree or PhD in bioinformatics.

    Your skills should include:

    • Strong foundation in molecular biology
    • Proficient with UNIX/LINUX
    • Highly proficient with Perl or Python
    • Highly proficient with C++ or Java
    • Experience with statistical analysis using R or Matlab.
    • Experience with open-source software, tools, and databases for analyzing next-generation sequencing data (RNA-seq, DNA variation)
    • Working knowledge of how to apply statistical tests to large datasets

    Must have excellent communications skills and the ability to work well with other members of the group.

    Please send curriculum vitae and contact information for three references by email to [email protected]

    Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
    by seqadmin


    Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

    Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
    by seqadmin


    Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
