12 Doctoral Candidates f/m/d Plant Proteomics, Bioinformatics and Biology

Plants are the nutritional basis of life on earth and protein-rich foods from plants are a global megatrend essential for sustaining an increasing human population and counteracting climate change. However, little is known about crop proteomes – the entirety of proteins that execute and control nearly every aspect of life. Therefore, TUM has launched a visionary initiative with high socio-economic relevance on the topic of “The Proteomes that Feed the World”. (more information)

Bioinformatics project: Visualization of multi-omics statistical analysis (master thesis or internship)

Integrative analysis of multiple omics data sets is crucial to reveal the biology that is less prominent in each individual omics data. In the past few years, I have developed several algorithms for the purpose of exploratory analysis, clustering analysis and enrichment analysis, etc. However, better visualization of results, particular in an interactive manner, is critical but still missing in order to derive testable hypotheses from the integrative analysis. This project requires developing a few data visualization modules using shiny (see related works) and apply them in the data analysis.
