Developing bioanalytical foundations for analysis in non-model systems

Please note: This Agency only participates in the February and August reviews.
Recent advances in genomic sequencing technologies have created a tremendous flux of new high-quality genomes for a multitude of non-model species. With each new genome many downstream applications become possible including transcriptomic and proteomic analysis. This project aims to develop and disseminate technological resources for non-model organisms. Specifically this includes demonstrating the capabilities and utility of transcriptomic and proteomic techniques in diverse species, making data available and creating programmatic tools for comparing between species. Additionally, this project will employ emerging proteomics techniques (such as data-independent acquisition) and will be working alongside software and algorithm developers to ensure that these platforms can be used beyond human data sets. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of this project, we are seeking applicants with experience in transcriptomics, proteomics and bioinformatics.
