This month we’re meeting Paul Kersey, who is the Ensembl Genomes team leader.
We’re looking for a bioinformatics team leader to manage our annotation efforts, including vertebrate and worm gene annotation and comparative genomics. We’re looking for someone with extensive experience in management and bioinformatics. Closes 10th June.
We’re looking for a biologist to join our Outreach team, delivering training and help on Ensembl. We’re looking for a background in molecular biology with experience communicating with other scientists in different formats. Closes 5th June.
The VEP (Variant Effect Predictor) is our most popular tool and is incredibly useful for annotating genetic variants with the genes they hit and what effect they have on them. But did you know you can filter your results? Both in the web interface and using the script?
We think conferences are great opportunities to use talks and posters to tell people about all the cool stuff we’re developing, provide training with workshops and learn more about what’s going on in our fields of interest. Ensembl team members attend many conferences a year and 2018 is no exception, we’re planning to attend twenty (so far)!
