The Database for Annotation, Visualization and Integrated Discovery (DAVID) provides a comprehensive set of functional annotation tools for investigators to understand the biological meaning behind large lists of genes. These tools are powered by the comprehensive DAVID Knowledgebase built upon the DAVID Gene concept which pulls together multiple sources of functional annotations. For any given gene list, DAVID tools are able to:

    Identify enriched biological themes, particularly GO terms
     Discover enriched functional-related gene groups
     Cluster redundant annotation terms
     Visualize genes on BioCarta & KEGG pathway maps
     Display related many-genes-to-many-terms on 2-D view.
     Search for other functionally related genes not in the list
     List interacting proteins
     Explore gene names in batch
     Link gene-disease associations
     Highlight protein functional domains and motifs
     Redirect to related literatures
     Convert gene identifiers from one type to another.
     And more

  •   Multiple positions available in LHRI 
    The Laboratory of Human Retrovirology and Immunoinformatics (LHRI) has collaborated with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and supported NIAID clinical trials for patients infected with HIV mutants resisting anti-retroviral therapy. LHRI has isolated the multiple-class drug-resistant (MDR) variants from patients and characterized each variant's drug sensitivity and infectivity. The study aims to define salvage therapy and develop novel therapy (chemotherapy and immunotherapy). During the investigation, LHRI has characterized the emergence of novel mutations on drug susceptibility and viral replication. LHRI is a pioneer in researching the anti-viral cytokine, Interleukin-27, DNA-repair protein (Ku70)-mediated innate immune response against HIV and other virus co-infection, and novel subsets of immune cells. LHRI maintains the Database for Annotation, Visualization and Integrated Discovery ( DAVID ).

      (1) Scientist I - Virology position available to perform the defective proviral study in our Basic Research Section.

      (2) Scientist-Cytokines and HIV available in our Basic Research Section. We are looking for a cytokine immunologist who is interested in virus (HIV/ HSV/KHSV) pathogenesis in myeloid immune cell types ( macrophages, dendritic cells and microglia cells).

      (3) Postdoctoral Fellow available in our Basic Research Section. This position is an excellent opportunity for a young Ph.D. who has no experience in virus research and seeks a career in a new research field. You will learn how to handle infectious RNA viruses and investigate the mechanism of virus infection and the interaction of host cell proteins using HIV (lentivirus) variants under an SOP following the NIAID guideline in the BSL2* laboratory. LHRI does not consider virus experience in the past, instead seeks a highly motivated researcher. The knowledge learned in the lab can apply to future COIVD or other virus studies.

      (4) Computational Scientist - Bioinformatics position available to develop bioinformatics analysis pipelines and manage independent research projects in our Bioinformatics Section.
