Long-read sequencing - Part I

An introduction to long-read sequencing.

NLP Research Engineer (Medicine)

Summary The University of Zurich together with the University Hospital of Zurich are embarking on a concerted effort to develop informatics programs to advance biomedical research and healthcare using cutting edge computational approaches. As part of these efforts, the Chair of Medical Informatics (https://krauthammerlab.ch) investigates topics in clinical data science and translational bioinformatics, such as knowledge discovery from Big Data sources (Electronic Medical Records, health registries) as well as the analysis of human Omics data.

We are looking for Masters Students!

We are currently looking for Master’s students in the field of Bioinformatics for the following topics Analyzing cell-free DNA fragmentation patterns in clinical samples This project aims to improve diagnosis and prognosis through liquid biopsies in cancer and various other diseases. Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) carries information on the epigenetics of distal tissues and organs. We discern epigenetic signatures from cfDNA-sequencing data and connect those to diagnoses and patient outcomes. The student should have basic experience with Unix systems, some experience with at least one scripting language (e.
