Generating automatic bioinformatics pipelines for obtaining quality results from huge data packages from Single Cell Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) data has become key for the advance of biological discoveries.
The main objectives of the Early Stage Researcher (ESR15) are:
I. Generate a set of automatic bioinformatics pipelines that will allow all the research community to analyze single-cell genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics data with very little computational biology knowledge.
II. Create a visual framework and back-end database in order to link the most well- known and curate databases with the NGS data results, and allow the researchers to interact and generate downstream discoveries.
III. Deploy and maintain a bioinformatics suit Software as a Service (SaaS) for Singe Cell Genomics.
We expect that generating a robust and scientifically validated automatic bioinformatics system for analysing, organizing and visualizing single-cell genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics will help the research community to increase the usage and adoption of single-cell high-throughput genomic studies.
The Early Stage Researcher in this case will not be asked to get a PhD after the 3 years.
A set of automatic bioinformatics tools for the analysis of single-cell NGS data. Database structures and a front-end implementation for NGS data analysis, organisation and visualisation allowing a workspace framework for researchers.
