Long-read sequencing - Part I

An introduction to long-read sequencing.

We are looking for applicants for a PhD in Biomedical Data Science and Bioinformatics

PhD in Biomedical Data Science and Bioinformatics We are looking for a PhD candidate to expand our multi-national research team of bioinformaticians and data scientists at the University of Zurich working on cutting-edge translational research problems. The main project that the candidate will be responsible for (and which provides funding for the position) concerns the multimodal data analysis in colorectal cancer (clinical records and multiomics).The candidate is expected to contribute to other on-going projects with regard to machine learning in genomics and bioinformatics.

We are looking for Masters Students in Bioinformatics!

We are currently looking for Master’s students in the field of Bioinformatics for the topic of Nucleosome footprints in cell-free DNA sequencing data Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) is released by dying cells into the surrounding tissues and also to the bloodstream. As nucleosomes protect DNA from degradation, plasma cfDNA carries information about the nucleosome organization in the cells of origin. Different characteristics of cfDNA are increasingly being used in the diagnostics of genetic diseases and the monitoring of cancer.
