Computational Master Student Projects in the Krauthammer lab

20.12.2019

The Krauthammer lab is currently looking for Master’s students in the field of bioinformatics for the following topics:

  • Analyzing the effects of DNA secondary structure on the mutational pattern in cancer.
    The student will analyze the relationship between mutational patterns detected in various cancer types and the locations of non-B-DNA secondary structures in the human genome. The student should have basic experience with Unix systems and some experience with at least one scripting language (e.g. Python, R or bash). Prior experience with genomics software (mappers, samtools or variant callers) is an advantage.

  • Mapping structural variation in cancer.
    The student will use genome sequencing data in order to discover novel structural variants in various cancer types (melanoma, colorectal carcinoma, lung cancer, etc.). The clinical significance of the novel and already known structural variants will also be evaluated using genome annotations. The student should have basic experience with Unix systems and some experience with at least one scripting language (e.g. Python). Prior experience with genomics software (mappers, samtools or variant callers) is an advantage.

Applications can be done by sending a CV to this e-mail along with a short description of the student’s motivation to join our lab.
