Yes, and you got it man!
After much research, they would want to make their findings availiable for interested commercial companies in the form of web pages stored in web servers. Animated graphical details of genes extraction procedures would also be needed to be portrayed in web pages......

When the human genome has become a common thing, they will want to use a microchip implemented in a watch which can read the genetic information of the wearer. Then doctors in need of such information will require wireless XML/Java technology to be able to accessed such information.
With regard to authentic web reference for such a thing in my previous post, try google.

Hi, you want any authentic web reference? Look no further. Just call me at the economic development board of singapore at 63362288 and I'll tell you what you want to know.

Johnson,
I am from Canada, and have done my undergraduate B.Sc. in biology, so this would be a perfect match for me.
As I can not call you, do you have some more direct information or contacts regarding possible positions that may be opening.
Thanks.

Brett,
You can also try the National University os Singapore, they recruit biotechnologist quite frequently

Actually that wouldn't be of much use. Except in the case of cancer and mutagenic chemicals, your genetic information is essentially stable. A watch that read your genetic information would have constant output. A lot of output to be sure, but unchanging.
What you would want to measure are proteins or other molecular entities (e.g. levels of a small-molecule drug). That would probably limit the watch to only monitoring things found in the blood stream. Much the same way that diabetics monitor blood sugar levels, except the watch idea would be more convenient.

I had sent my resume to Contact Singapore a while ago, looking for contract positions, but never heard from them. I recall how a few years ago they made such a push for technical talent, they kept asking me to consider coming over.

Hey, now it's look like it's your turn to make a push on them. By the way, may I know which position you apply for and which company, I could keep a lookout for you for development in your areas in my local newspaper.

Ok, you don't have to call me, I tell you things anyway. The shipyard in singapore is in need of manpower. They require personnels for servicing. A lot of locals are not keen for such jobs. You can contact the Ministry of Manpower of singapore for details.

Dear Mark
Chartered Semiconductor of Singapore Ltd advertised a full page of recruitment for technical personnels a month ago in my local newspaper. Guess you could try calling the HR or their web page for details.

This is one of the funniest threads on this site
Johnson, thanks for quoting my "KISS or KILL?" intellectual atrocity here. Actually, I am not sure if somebody invented it before me

Dear Map/Marga(whichever you like to be addressed)
Really thanks for bringing up the "KISS or KILL" intellectual atrocity. The fact is, I myslef dunno
if somebody else invented it or not but I'm sure I definitely learn this from you. I try to remind myself constantly to be more sensitive next time. You know, being a person with no love & no friends, you don't want to remember too many things. Here's something for you:
Last year this day at this door
People and flowers blushes at each other
Partner oh partner where have you gone
Flowers continue to smile and blush as before(with the spring wind)
Look, I actually tried very hard to add something really stoooopid after this. But I guess I'll do that some other time.

Singapore needs to recruit thousands of experts in biology, computing and other related fields to sieve thru and make sense of the deluge of genomic data that is emerging.Also to see how genomes relate to proteins and how all these are linked to disease. Java will be used to develop software to do data mining or genomic information analysis. HP has agreed to invest $12.7 billion to develop the largest life sciences supercomputing facility. So Java programmers, look no further & come here to work and you'll hae plenty of money.

Take a look at

It is really interesting to deal with protein
databases, genome
Have fun
