bioinformatics tools and a central database source.

The ideal candidate will have an advanced degree in molecular
biology/biochemistry or related field, computer experience in 
a unix environment, and strong interpersonal and communication 
skills. Familiarity with the GCG Wisconsin Package is expected. 
Primary duties will be providing technical assistance to users
