Informatics

Each experiment deliveres a lot of data, this data is stored on a central server. Your task will be designing a (JAVA) program that helps us to keep track of all the data, but also to make it editable for both us and our clients, downloadable, visualization, ... For this job you will work with remote data access, a MySQL server, webservices, ...
For this internship knowledge of biology isn't needed, but being interested will help.
