Cedars-Sinai Research Bioinformatician I AGCT in Los Angeles, California
Under close supervision, the Research Bioinformatician I performs general bioinformatics analysis and software support for projects involving in omics. The RBI will manage omic data including loading and querying data from database system and public repositories, and transform and merge multilevel omic data into user-friendly formats, assist in development, test, and maintenance of modular software pipelines, provide daily bioinformatics data analysis, preliminary interpretation of the data, and reports of the results for possible publications.
ESSENTIAL JOB DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
•Manage ‘omic data including loading and querying data from database system and public repositories and transform and merge multi-level ‘omic data into user-friendly formats, assist in development, test, and maintenance of modular software pipelines, provide daily bioinformatics data analysis, preliminary interpretation of the data, and reports of the results for possible publications.
•Manipulate large datasets from whole genome type scans, perform tests to determine biological significance, and visualize biologically meaningful data.
•Utilize a variety of basic analysis tools to determine things like genetic linkage, gene expression profiles, and molecular classifiers from data generated from microarrays, qPCR data, and Next Gen Sequencing.
•Assist in specific advanced collaborations with the Core Directors collaborative lead research as well as help to translate developmental pipelines for filtering and analyzing these large datasets.
