Bioinformatic analysis of bacterial genomes and metagenomes for studies on the correlation between genomics data and biological functions

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research program i related to:

1) Development of new bioinformatic appraoaches for functional analysis of bacterial genomes and metagenomes revelant in agriculture and environment, with particular focus on soil bacteria and on nitrogen fixation.

2) Analysis of metagenomic databases in relation to genes involved in biogeochemical cycles.

3) Analysis of genomic sequences from strains of the nitrogen-fixing symbiotic bacterium Sinorhizobium meliloti looking for genes involved in the different symbiotic performances

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
