gene function with microarray data from poplar.  In addition, the candidate
will develop web applications (tools) using JSP, or PHP, and MySQL.

Applicants should have interest in developing a career in
bioinformatics/systems biology.  Those who have skills and experience in at

programming (web application), gene expression data analysis.  Strong
ability in data manipulation using programming languages like R/SAS, perl,
java, and C is anticipated.  The candidate should possess the ability to
