John Innes Centre
Brassica Genome Bioinformatics
As advertised in New Scientist (6/12/97, p78), applications are invited
for a position immediately available at the John Innes Centre, Norwich
UK in Brassica Bioinformatics. The successful candidate will curate and
further develop a Brassica genome database, funded by the UK BBSRC
UKCropNet initiative (http://synteny.nott.ac.uk). The database is
currently using ACEDB 4.5. A key aim is to integrate genetic data from
Brassica which can be integrated with that from the closely related
Arabidopsis genome. A degree in a biological subject with a strong
background in genetics is required, together with an interest and
aptitude in applying database methods to facilitate genome research.
Experience of any of UNIX, ACEDB, Perl or Java would be an advantage.
The post is available for approximately two years and will be appointed
between £13,860 and
£16,500 (Band 7), at a level depending on qualifications and experience.
