Open Data, Standards and Tools for Translational Genomics

OpenPGx is a global collaborative endeavour to create an Open Access resource and toolkit for personal genome data analysis . We hope this would enable the application of advances in science and technology to clinical settings with the overall aim and impact of improving patient health care. (more about OpenPGx).

Information for Potential Interns and Summer Students

I have only limited opportunities for Interns/Summer students, usually 2 at a time. As an Institute policy the duration should be more than 3 months, and I would prefer someone for 6 months or more. Please note that all prospective Interns and Summer Students need to write a short proposal ( a paragraph would do) on an innovative idea they think could be performed during their internship. This need not be on something I generally work on. To make sure you are a legitimate applicant and not a spammer, please add "[Internship]" in your subject. I generally would not need unsolicited recommendations.

Attractive oppurtunity to participate in Collaborative Cheminformatics Research and work closely with a number of researchers across the country as part of the Open Source Drug Discovery Initiative
