The Luo group at UNC Charlotte Dept. of Bioinformatics is seeking a new member as a postdoc researcher. The new members will develop statistical/computational methods/tools for high throughput omics (genome, transcriptome, proteome, metabolome etc) data integration, analysis and visualization; apply them to complex diseases/traits and biomedical problems. He/she will participate in 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.
