Important Public Items

(not on the homepage yet, but will be soon)

Software and tools

  • RSEQtools: a computational suite for the analysis of RNA-Seq data including a compact and "privacy-aware" data format.
  • FusionSeq: a computational framework to identify fusion transcripts from paired-end RNA-Seq data.
  • ACT Tool: for aggregation and correlation analyses of genomic signal tracks
  • PeakSeq: a computational tool for analyzing ChIP-Seq data

Job opportunities

Post-doctoral Position in Bioinformatics at Yale

Applicants are invited for a post-doctoral position at Yale University. The position is for two years with possible extensions. Choice of project would to some degree depend on the applicant's interests and abilities, though it is expected that the research will be purely computational and will fall into a number of sub-areas in the emerging field of bioinformatics. For specifics, see lab research areas here. Also, see an introduction to the lab and some of our best papers.

The ideal applicant would have a PhD (preferably in bioinformatics, biophysics, or computer science) and have already had some experience in one of the above-mentioned research areas. However, a non-biological background with strong training in another area of science (e.g., physics or computer science) would also be appropriate. He or she would be very skilled in programming and using the computer to solve problems (e.g. experience with C/C++, perl5, SQL, HTML/java, fortran, O/X-PLOR, blast/fasta, excel/word, Irix/linux, and so on).

Further contact information is available here. Applicants are requested to send a CV that includes a list of publications and details of 3 references. Normal e-mail is OK for all correspondence. However, copies of official documents should follow by regular post. Further details about the position and bioinformatics research at Yale can be obtained over the web at:

PhD Studentships in Bioinformatics at Yale

Students interested in bioinformatics should apply via the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CBB) track in the Biological & Biomedical Sciences (BBS) program, being sure to indicate interest in this lab to enable proper routing of the application. More information through CBB Home Page and BBS Program.
