Biomolecular approach to genomic and epigenomic personalizad medicine through genome-wide and whole genome sequencing approaches

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The aim of the projec is to define novel biomolecular signatures in complex diseases in humans, both from a genetic and epigenetic point of view by evaluating nucleic acids extracted from peripheral blood mononuclear cells by using next generation sequencing methods. The key scope is to identify genetic/epigenetic markers in well-characterized subgroups of patients affected by major chronic-multifactorial diseases to define possible at-risk molecular markers which may allow a highly sophisticated personalized medicine approach. The methods utilized will be high-throughput, array-based technologies but needs optimization by highly skilled personnel and with explicit experience in the field of sequencing and next generation sequencing as well as in the performance of gene expression array-based technologies.

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!
