Our research group at UNC Charlotte Dept. of Bioinformatics is seeking a PhD student. The incumbent will participate in development of bioinformatics web servers, resources and applications. He/she will also work on big data integration and analysis. 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.
