The Sequence Families team, led by Rob Finn, is responsible for the delivery of world leading databases and services, including EMBL-EBI’s microbiome analysis platform MGnify. This project will also interface with other EMBL-EBI resources, such as Ensembl and BioSamples.
MGnify is EMBL-EBI’s microbiome analysis platform, which performs the archiving, assembly and analysis of amplicon, metagenomics and metatranscriptomics data. We are participants in the recently funded EU project, HoloFood. This project aims to develop a holistic solution to improve animal food production through deconstructing the biomolecular interactions between animal feed, gut microorganisms and animals (salmon and chicken). Our role in this project will be to help perform the analysis of the gut microbiomes, using our own in-house compute cluster and cloud platforms. We will also be responsible for the integration of different data, allowing their discovery and contextualisation with respect to each other.
Degree level or equivalent qualification/experience in computational, biological or related scientific discipline.
