it: Research Position: Bioinformatics analysis of high-throughput data for the definition of certification system of innovative products [Duties: The research will develop a genetic traceability/authentication system for Sicilian typical dairy products obtained with milk of Sicilian autochthonous sheep breeds. The molecular data obtained from the OvineSNP50K Illumina analysis of individual sheep samples, DNA pools and experimental cheeses will be analyzed with statistical and bioinformatics tools in order to select a SNP markers panel with high discriminating power of the breeds. In addition, the identification of innovative systems for the phytopathological defense of the grapevine is planned, with particular attention to Oidium tuckeri | Minimum Requirements: Early stage researcher or 0-4 yrs (Post graduate)] / Università degli Studi di Palermo; Palermo, Sicilia, Italy / deadline January 18
