    Pacific Biosciences is seeking a Bioinformatics Scientist to support application development using SMRT® sequencing data. The candidate will employ expertise in bioinformatics, data analysis, biological insight, and software engineering. The ability to interact with marketing, internal support and development; communicate with customers both pre- and post-sales; and communicate results to diverse audiences are important aspects of this role. This scientist will be working in a fast-paced commercial environment, interacting with customers, other scientists and engineers from a wide variety of backgrounds. The position is based in Menlo Park.

    Responsibilities:

    • Work with R&D and marketing teams to continually improve the bioinformatics capabilities and workflows associated with next generation sequencing data to support use of the platform in general and in strategic application areas
    • Provide scientific and applications feedback to development, marketing, and sales
    • Utilize and integrate both Pacific Biosciences tools and open source academic tools to help analyze data for internal and customer projects
    • Document bioinformatics workflows and pipelines for use by a wide audience
    • Assist customers and collaborators in experimental design and analysis to promote the use of the Pacific Biosciences instrumentation in their laboratories
    • Problem-solve to overcome technical challenges (including basic Linux operation, Pacific Biosciences analysis software, and operation of bioinformatics analysis pipelines)
    • Train bioinformatics customers and collaborators on PacBio data characteristics, target applications, and PacBio and other open source academic tools
    • Assist sales and support in pre-sales functions as well as working with customers to understand and integrate their work flows
    • Conduct scientific presentations to internal and external audiences

    Requirements:
    • Min. Master’s degree, PhD Preferred in bioinformatics, life science, and/or computer science degree

    Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
    by seqadmin


    The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist on Modified Bases...

    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...
