Bioinformatics Analyst I - (1600004X)
The Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS) and Genomics Resource Center (GRC) is recruiting for a Bioinformatics Analyst I. Comprised of an inter-disciplinary, multi-department team of investigators, IGS uses genomics and bioinformatics to understand genome function in health and disease, to study molecular and cellular networks in a variety of model systems, and to generate data and bioinformatics resources of value to the international scientific community. The Genomics Resource Center (GRC) is a high-throughput laboratory and data analysis group supporting the scientific programs of IGS and its collaborators, both across the University of Maryland Baltimore campus and around the globe. Using multiple high-throughput sequencing and analysis platforms, the GRC generates high-quality genomic data in a cost-effective manner. Bioinformatics teams at IGS include researchers with expertise in genome assembly, genome analysis and annotation, comparative analysis, evolutionary analysis, systems biology, cancer genomics, and genotyping. The Informatics Resource Center (IRC) at IGS provides annotation and analysis of genomic data for projects locally and internationally, using state-of-the-art computational infrastructure.
Bioinformatics Analysts contribute to genomic research projects and scientific analysis of the data generated by those projects using a variety of database and software applications. Their responsibilities include generation, annotation, gathering or analyzing data and preparing for further analysis, research, or publication.
Following established procedures or specific scientific protocols, add value to data generated by genome sequencing projects through assembly, annotation, curation, and quality assurance.
Perform preliminary analysis of genomic data and format for use by other analysts or scientists.
