Increase patient reporting by analysing SNPs in tumour tissues

Next to evaluating somatic variants (uniquely present in tumour tissue), it’s also informative to consider the presence of germline variants such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). This internships involves the development of a module for analysis of these variants that can even be utilised to identify genetic markers in healthy people (heritage, eye colour, etc.).

Profiles we are looking for • Experience in NGS data handling, processing, and analysis• Familiar with biological databases design, curation, and maintenance• Python (preferred) or R programming skills • Cancer biology background is a plus (cancer metabolism, tumour genomics, innate immune responses)• Strong interest in cancer research and personalized therapeutics is highly recommended• Critical about assessing implications of research and able to convert them into pathway functionalities• Team player who is able to be flexible and work independently
