Graduate student position (PhD) in bioinformatics available
A position is available to identify (primary and secondary structure) motifs involved in a novel RNA trans-splicing process that we discovered recently (Marande & Burger 2007, Science 318:415). Predicted motifs and postulated mechanisms will be the basis for in vitro experiments, which, in turn, will help to narrow the search space of in silico analyses. More information about the laboratory’s research program is available at http://megasun.bch.umontreal.ca/People/burger/research.html
