Computational DNA damage and repair

2022-2023 Summer
Faculty Department of Project Supervisor: 
Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences
Number of Students: 

In this project we aim to understand how our genome is damaged. and how our cells cope with the damage. Fortunately, most organisms have a cellular mechanism of DNA repair that removes the DNA damage induced by internal and external factors. We are interested in understanding the dynamics of DNA damage and repair events in genomes. Recently, a number of genome-wide sequencing technologies have been developed to map damage and repair events onto genomes of interest. We apply bioinformatics applications to reveal the genomic factors playing role in DNA damage and repair bias. In this project you will analyze genomic damage and repair profiles under a variety of conditions.
We expect the following:
1) Coding skills (Python or R) are required, unix skills are prefferable.
2) Interest in molecular biology.
3) The internship will be held on campus.
It is a good idea to write a motivation letter and send to to increase your admission chances. Your preference priority list will be taken into account in our decisions.
