Hours per Week: 30

Number of Positions Anticipated: 1

Description:

We are developing new methods for targeted DNA sequencing that are applicable to our ongoing epigenetic studies of autoimmune diseases. These methods involve the capture of the MHC locus, a key region of the human genome where multiple immune-related genes reside. The internship will involve the optimization of our capture methods for this locus and the analysis of the MHC locus in patients with lupus.

Requirements:

Individuals with molecular laboratory experience or computational experience preferred.
