This position is in Pre-Therapeutic Target Discovery within Bioinformatics Services Core in Tarrytown, NY. There is 1 position for Summer AND Fall 2020 (full time, May/June to December 2020).

The Tier1 process at Regeneron analyzes gene function using a standardized set of phenotyping assays to study the effects of targeted mouse gene knockouts. This process is an early part of R&D to identify potential biological drug targets. The Regeneron Bioinformatics Core Service manages the organization, analysis and presentation of Tier1 data generated with a variety of technologies, such as automated serum chemistry and hematology instruments, fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS), microcomputed tomography (uCT) and high-resolution episcopic microscopy (HREM) and RNASeq. Regeneron has accumulated more than a decade's worth of Tier1 data for nearly 1000 genes. The proposed project is to develop and implement a strategy for managing heterogenous data from many sources. The focus of this work is data infrastructure (eg databases, classification with ontologies, etc.) to support current and future data mining and meta-analyses.
