Danmarks Tekniske Universitet PhD scholarship in Bioinformatics Applied to Pangenome Graphs

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet, Kongens Lyngby

In this position, you will develop algorithms and computational methods to deal with the analysis of large datasets from modern and ancient sources.

Traditionally, sequencing projects used a single linear reference genome to conduct analyses. Recently, groups have proposed replacing this single reference with a graph encompassing all known diversity within a species. While this approach has yielded exciting results, a lot of work remains to fully exploit the power of pangenomic graphs. The Modern and Ancient Genomes group at DTU are pioneers in terms of developing probabilistic inference methods on pangenome graphs. The position involves computational methods development which means that a large portion of time will be dedicated to algorithm development and coding, likely in C++.
