Your role

You will be working in collaboration with the team to analyse the largest genetic interaction dataset generated to date in human cell lines (75K pairs across 50 cell lines) in order to prioritise candidate target pairs for therapeutic applications, understand the mechanisms and principles underpinning these genetic interactions.
