We contributed to a paper by Johan Björkegren and Josefin Skogsberg from the Cardiovascular Genomics group on “Plasma cholesterol–induced lesion networks activated before regression of early, mature, and advanced atherosclerosis”, published in PLoS Genetics. Congrats to Josefin who lead the study!
We have a vacancy for a Research Fellow to join the group from 1st May 2014. See the Roslin website or NatureJobs for the job advert. Closing date for applications 26th March 2014.
Applications are invited for PhD projects in the division of Genetics & Genomics, including two in our lab. Deadline for applications 3rd Feb 2014. More details and application procedure here.
Our paper about the software tool kruX for performing millions of non-parametric ANOVA (Kruskal-Wallis) tests at once using matrix-multiplication methods has been published by BMC Bioinformatics. The final version is also available from the arXiv.
A warm welcome to Siddharth who joins the lab to work on a joint project with Liam Morrison to study host-pathogen interactions in trypanosome infections.
A PhD position is available to study the genetic control of human vascular senescence, in collaboration with the lab of Albert Tenesa. For more information, see the vacancy. Closing date for applications 10 January 2014!
A PhD position is available to study the systems biology of host-parasite interactions in trypanosome infections, in collaboration with the lab of Liam Morrison. For more information, see the vacancy. Closing date for applications 10 January 2014!
After two years in the lab, Yvonne has moved on to a lecturer position at Aalen University. Many congratulations Yvonne for this great achievement!
We have a vacancy for a bioinformatics research assistant to work on an exciting project to unravel the mechanisms and host-parasite interactions influencing clinical outcome in trypanosome infections using systems biology approaches, in collaboration with the lab of Liam Morrison.
A preprint of our paper kruX: Matrix-based non-parametric eQTL discovery is available from the arXiv. This paper describes a software tool called kruX for performing millions of non-parametric ANOVA (Kruskal-Wallis) tests at once using matrix-multiplication methods. kruX is about 3 orders of magnitude faster than performing these tests one-by-one, which makes a difference if you want to do billions of them!
