The Genomics Institute of Singapore (GIS) has an exciting opportunity for a Bioinformatics Specialist to join a population-scale genomics initiative that aims to create a comprehensive data bank with integrated genetic, clinical and lifestyle data. In its pilot phase, this effort has completed whole-genome sequencing of 10K individuals, and has delivered a catalogue of common genetic variants across three ethnic populations (Wu D. et al. 2019). Now, the challenge is to scale up genetic data production to a further 100K individuals. By joining our multi-disciplinary team, you will be involved in efforts to set up a high-throughput data analysis workflow, devise solutions for managing and controlling access to petabytes of information, and eventually apply the developed tools to deliver one of the largest population genomics efforts in Singapore to date.
