Bioinformatics Internship

DNAnexus

Biotech Internship

DNAnexus® has built the world’s most secure cloud platform and global network for scientific collaboration and accelerated discovery. We embrace challenges and partnership to tackle the world’s most exciting opportunities across a spectrum of industries – biopharmaceutical, bioagricultural, sequencing services, clinical diagnostics, medical centers, government, and research consortia.

In this internship, you will have the opportunity to be part of some pretty cool projects while learning how to use our platform and the DNAnexus SDK. On a daily basis, you will be working hands-on with genomics sequence analysis and using popular tools such as NGS, BWA, and GATK to translate data pipelines into the DNAnexus platform, use cloud resources to optimize and accelerate them, and confirm their scientific validity. Coding is a big part of the role, so expect some of your time to be spent building core technologies for scaling up systems to thousands of servers for managing and analyzing petabytes of data. This is the tip of the iceberg -- there is much, much more….
