The Data Core project is creating and maintaining a Project Portal to comprehensively map a mouse Brain Atlas. We will be bringing together brain images and single cell data together on a commercial cloud platform to enable interactive collaborations and reference.
In order to understand how brains work, we need to understand their cell type and circuit connectivity. Multiple research groups are now working advance our understanding of brain function. The BRAIN Initiative Cell Census Network (BICCN) is a collaborative effort aimed at creating an integrated resource containing knowledge about nervous system architecture in multiple species.
Currently the project is focused on analyzing a large data set of mouse brains (>1000 brains, each with >100Gigavoxels of image data) to obtain a comprehensive circuit map of the whole brain. http://mouse.brainarchitecture.org/homepage/
We are seeking a Web Portal Engineer is expected to be involved executing towards a creating the portal as well as developing an interactive interface. A successful candidate will be able to work closely with the Data Analyst to integrate various cloud based data to provide a seamless and smooth user experience accessing and analyzing data across Cold Spring Harbor and Broad Institute.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), founded in 1890, is a preeminent international research institution, achieving breakthroughs in molecular biology and genetics and enhancing scientific knowledge worldwide.
The institution consists of over 600 researchers and technicians, with expertise in cancer, neuroscience, quantitative biology, plant biology, bioinformatics & genomics. CSHL has collabor...ations with top clinical institutions including Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Dana-Farber, Johns Hopkins, NYU, Weill Cornell, Columbia University, Yale and UCLA. 50% of our research funding is from private and unrestricted sources, allowing a unique degree of scientific freedom and collaboration.
