UK PhD Position in Bioinformatics at UMIST, Manchester


A 3 year BBSRC/EPSRC studentship in Bioinformatics is available
from October 2000 working in the group of Dr. Simon Hubbard at
UMIST, Manchester. The project will entail developing and extending
exisiting programs and tools for proteome protein identification from
mass spectrometric data. Novel data sources will be evaluated, including
non-denaturing digestions on proteins prior to analysis and the ability
to "jump-species" will be investigated. Results will be exploited in a 
new range of software for proteome protein identification. These will 
then be tested using exemplary systems where mass spectrometric data 
is already being collected here at UMIST. Examples include studies 
on the Chicken muscle proteome (Beynon group) and the protein 
phosphorylation in developmental pathways in leukaemic cell lines 
(Whetton group). The ability of the tools to routinely identify
likely protein matches will be assessed.

Applicants should have a good first degree in a Science, which does
not necessarily contain a biological component. Applications
are particularly welcome from students with computational and/or
physical backgrounds. BBSRC/EPSRC studentships are only open to UK/EU
