The Luo Group at UNC Charlotte Dept. of Bioinformatics is seeking a Bioinformatics Postdoc or Software Developer. The new member will lead the development of bioinformatics web servers and applications. One focus is the Pathview project. Pathview is an open-source package that maps, integrates and renders a large variety of biological data onto pathways, and produces interpretable graphs with publication quality. Pathview was quickly adopted and widely used by thousands of scientists worldwide. With a major NSF grant recently awarded, Pathview will be fully developed as a systematic solution for pathway based analytics and visualization. First, Pathview Web server will be developed, which not only provides a graphic and user-friendly online portal to Pathview. Second, the Pathview R package will be expanded in its core functions to support better visualization and more data types. Third, multiple automated pathway analysis workflows will be developed based on Pathview for transcriptomic, genomic and other omics data analysis.
