CCBuilder: a tool for building, designing and assessing coiled-coil-protein assemblies



The ability to accurately model protein structures at the atomistic level underpins efforts to understand protein folding, to engineer natural proteins predictably, and to design proteins de novo. Homology based methods are well established and produce impressive results. However, these are limited to structures presented by and resolved for natural proteins. Addressing this problem more widely and deriving truly ab initio models requires: mathematical descriptions for protein folds; the means to decorate these with natural, engineered or de novo sequences; and methods to score the resulting models.

PhD Scholarship – Bioinformatics @ The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute


Position details

  • The Project:

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common form of skin cancer. In Australia there were 138,000 new diagnoses of SSC, and 445 reported fatalities from the disease in 2010.
The successful Scholar will pursue a PhD degree in bioinformatics using next generation sequencing data to study the genetic landscape in Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and the relationship between UV damaged skin, a pre-cancerous condition called Actinic keratosis (AK), and SCC. The candidate will develop algorithms to perform quality control of sequence data and methods to capture a comprehensive set of mutations in these samples. Methods to control for false positives and coincidental findings will be developed using a resource of 2000 control exomes that have been sequenced at The University of Queensland Centre for Clinical Genomics (UQCCG).
The candidate will then develop statistical methods to search for biomarkers that can be used to identify the transition between tumour states and study the heterogeneity between tumours using SNPs, structural variations and copy number information. The project will be performed in collaboration with the Genomic Medicine and Cancer programs at UQDI. This analysis will require the use of high performance computing and programming in R and Perl.

The Person

  • The candidate will have a 1st Class Honours degree or equivalent in science. We will consider students from a wide range of backgrounds, including: mathematics, statistics, epidemiology, computer science, bioinformatics, physics, genetics, and molecular biology. Laboratory experience in molecular biology, cell biology and/or genetics is also desirable, although not necessary.
  • International applicants must meet the University's English language proficiency requirements.


  • The base stipend will be at the rate of AUD$25,392.00 per annum (2014 rate) tax-free for three years with the possibility of a six month extension in approved circumstances. Top-up salary may be available to suitably qualified candidates.


For further information about the research project, please contact Professor David Evans ( or Dr Paul Leo ( Enquiries can be received at any time. Start dates are throughout the year with the University allowing registrations commencing Jan 1, April 1, July 1 or Oct 1 each year.

Major revision of the NCBI genomes FTP site this summer

Within the next two weeks, NCBI will make a major revision to the genomes FTP site. This redesign will expand available content and facilitate data access through an organized, predictable directory hierarchy. The updated site will also provide greater support for downloading assembled genome sequences and/or corresponding annotation data. To give those with automated tools time to update, we plan to maintain the older content and structure of the preexisting /genomes/ FTP site in parallel with the new structure for six months.
  • The new FTP site structure provides a single entry point to access content representing either GenBank or RefSeq data. Advantages of the updated genomes FTP site include the comprehensive provision of data through a single process flow that is reliant on content in NCBI’s Assembly database (which excludes viruses at this time), integration of quality assurance regression tests, and provision of a consistent core set of files for all organisms and assemblies.
