Open positions at Jaime Huerta’s lab at CBGP in Madrid

A good colleague of mine is starting a computational genomics group at the CBGP institute in Madrid. They focuses on the use and development of comparative (meta-)genomic methods to decipher what makes each organism and ecosystem unique. They study processes such as gene loss and duplication, speciation, functional conservation and horizontal gene transfer. For this, they Read more about Open positions at Jaime Huerta’s lab at CBGP in Madrid[…]
