About Indian Institute  of Wheat And Barley Research,Karnal
Directorate of Wheat Research (DWR) through All India Coordinated Wheat and Barley Improvement Project (AICW & BIP) is coordinating the multidisciplinary and multilocational activities of varietal improvement, resource management and crop protection technologies across the diverse ecosystems for increasing and stabilizing the barley production. As a nodal institute, DWR facilitates planning, exchange of experimental material, monitoring the trial/activities, data compilation and documentation. At present 120 scientists from 30 funded centers and 174 scientists from 123 non-funded co-operating centers are carrying out the planned activities. In addition to this, as a key component of national steering Committee, the DWR plays a crucial role in formulating strategies to ensure sustainable improvement in the productivity of Rice-Wheat System. Adoption of molecular approach to complement conventional wheat improvement programme is one of the recent initiatives taken up by DWR through a research network project. Research capabilities and facilities are being strengthened through various network projects to enhance output of competent research centers under AICW & BIP.

PhD in Aquatic Biogeochemistry
Resolving the Organic Carbon Budget of a salmonid humic lake
Applications are invited for a full-time three year PhD research position in Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT), Ireland, in conjunction with the Irish Marine Institute. The position can commence anytime up to Dec 2015 but preferably as soon as feasible.
Waters draining peat catchments are generally coloured due to high levels of dissolved organic carbon. This carbon can represent the main carbon source to downstream lakes and therefore fuel the lake foodweb. Human activities have greatly modified global carbon exchange between the atmosphere, land and freshwater bodies in recent decades, including in peatland catchments.Knowledge about the redistribution of this carbon is crucial, not only to understand global cycling,but for mitigation and management in affected catchments. This project will investigate the carbon cycle in a humic catchment, building on work that already been undertaken in the Burrishoole catchment, Mayo.

Dundalk Institute of Technology


  • Applicants should have a good primary degree (First or Upper Second Class Honours) or M.Sc. in an appropriate discipline (e.g. Environmental Science, Environmental Biology, Biology). The successful candidate should possess a knowledge of catchment processes, have some lab-based experience inwater or sediment analysis, a knowledge of multivariate statistical analysis, and be highly selfmotivated.
    NOTE: A full EU driving licence is also essential.


  • Funding is through a Marine Institute Cullen Fellowship and provides a 3-year stipend of €16,000 per annum plus fees (appropriate for EU students studying at DkIT) and the position can commence anytime up to Dec 2015 but preferably as soon as feasible. The student will primarily be based in the Marine Institute facility in Burrishoole, Newport, Co. Mayo, and will also use the facilities of the Centre for Freshwater and Environmental Studies, Dundalk Institute of Technology. The successful candidate will be registered as a full time research student in DkIT, working under the supervision of Dr Eleanor Jennings (DkIT), and Dr Elvira de Eyto (Marine Institute, Newport).

In this video from ISC 2015, Mark O'Connor from Allinea demonstrates how the company's Performance Reports tool enables coders to speed up the Discovar bioinformatics code. Allinea Performance Reports are the most effective way to characterize and understand the performance of HPC application runs. One single-page HTML report elegantly answers a range of vital questions for any HPC site:
  • Is this application well-optimized for the system it is running on?
  • Does it benefit from running at this scale?
  • Are there I/O or networking bottlenecks affecting performance?
  • Which hardware, software or configuration changes can we make to improve performance further.

to advance bioinformatics for gene research

Researchers at The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation, Michigan Technological University (MTU) and University of California, Riverside (UCR) recently received a three-year, $1.45 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
  • This grant will enable the Noble Foundation’s Patrick X. Zhao, Ph.D., principal investigator, and co-principal investigators, Hairong Wei, Ph.D. (MTU) and Shizhong Xu, Ph.D. (UCR) to develop the formulas and models needed to study how genes or groups of genes (genotypes) are connected to and control the characteristics traits (phenotypes) of plants. This would turn gene data into valuable information for plant breeders to use when breeding improved varieties.
“This grant will help us generate new methods and tools to decipher plant the associations between genes and physical traits. This will further enhance plant breeding programs,” Zhao said. “This is a great opportunity to join with other researchers and combine our expertise to study these associations more in-depth than ever before. Through this collaborative research, we look forward to advancing bioinformatics for the basic plant science research, plant breeding, and ultimately to improving agriculture and our communities.”

The European Bioinformatics Institute recently scooped the award for Best Datacentre Project at the CW European User Awards, and here's why In its role as data custodian, it’s up to the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) in Cambridge to ensure the world’s biological information is freely available and accessible for use by the global scientific community.
  • The non-profit is currently sitting on 50,000TB of biological data, which is distributed across three UK datacentres. Scientists from academia and the commercial world are invited to use these datacentres for research, app development or staff training purposes.
  • According to EBI calculations, it fields around 12 million requests each month for access to this data worldwide.
  • Users can choose to download and analyse it locally or use EBI’s own infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to do the deed and – in turn – save themselves the hassle of finding somewhere to store it all on-premise.
“This is a fairly new approach and is feeding into the different ways the life science community wants to consume and deliver research. We’re seeing prototypes of this model coming out in a range of life science areas,” says Steven Newhouse, head of technical services at EBI.
  • With around 20% of the EBI’s 570 staff devoting their time to carrying out collaborative and investigation-led life science research, the amount of data the organisation has to manage is doubling every year.
  • At the current rate of generation, the data the organisation manages is expected to grow over the next five years to around 1.5 million TB, putting huge pressure on EBI’s data infrastructure and operations.
