An important focus of the Animal Health and Food Safety team is to develop
robust assays that can detect microbial pathogens as part of routine
surveillance or in the case of a disease outbreak. Designing effective assays
requires the use of a host of genomic information representing the organisms
of interest as well as those to be excluded including close genetic
relatives. The candidate will have the opportunity to work on various
bioinformatics projects within the group to assist in this process including
the analysis of next generation sequencing data in order to build databases
of pathogenic microbial genomes for the purposes of identifying assay targets
and designing assays based on this information.
Requirements Intern candidates must be enrolled at an accredited college or university
pursuing a Bachelor's, Master's, or PhD degree. Graduating students are
eligible only if they are returning to school the following semester to
pursue the next level degree.
