Toronto, ON


Adela is focused on the detection of cancer and other high-morbidity, high-mortality conditions through a blood test. The Company’s genome-wide methylation analysis technology has the unique ability to distinguish the most-highly informative (methylated) regions of the genome from the non-informative regions and preferentially target those informative regions for sequencing. The technology is initially being developed for use across the cancer continuum for detection, diagnosis, and management, and in the future will be applied to other conditions beyond cancer.

Reporting to the Data Scientist, the Bioinformatics scientist manages, processes, and analyzes genomic, epigenomic and molecular data. Accountable for building and maintaining databases to contain the information, and create or select algorithms to process, analyze, visualize, and interpret. The Bioinformatics scientist will be responsible to build and maintain bioinformatics pipelines.
