Do you, or someone you know, what to change the world?

We are trying to solve a riddle. How do people get cancer? [1]

If you have cancer, which medicine will work best for you? Does it exist

When you visit your GPs, they can easily and routinely ask for a blood
test. We want to make the same capabilities available but for genetic
sequencing. [2]

We are Genomics England, www.genomicsengland.co.uk, fully owned and
funded by the Government and we are seeking a range of permanent Python
developers. We need good junior through to exemplary senior developers.

>From the outset you will be working we highly talented
Bioinformaticians, to help translate their algorithms into Python -- and
for the already existing Python make it robust, even easier to test and
help us scale so we can (eventually) handle the kinds of query rates the
NHS is going to send.

The salary on offer ranges from £50k - £90k, depending upon experience;
we aren't looking to hire in a hurry. We want to ensure new hires can
'gel' with the team. If you are a recruitment agency, we will consider
any CVs sent to us a lovely gift but nothing more.

Feel free to reply if you'd like more details and I'll answer as I can.
