Informatics and bioinformatics support


I’m a bioinformatics researcher within the “Gut Microbes and Health” Institute Strategic Programme (GMH), providing support and training for metagenomics and microbiome-related analyses. This programme, started in 2018, will include massive longitudinal studies of cohorts of infants and ageing people, and will gather insights on lifestyle effects on our gut health. My support to the GMH activities thus includes the coordination and implementation of best practices for the analysis of bacterial, fungal and viral microbiome components.

I did my PhD at the University of Padua, focusing on genome scaffolding using long mate paired libraries.

I then worked as a Postdoc fellow in the same university on genomic and transcriptomic analyses of stress resistant grape (V. vinifera) rootstocks.

In 2013, I joined BMR Genomics, University of Padua spin-off, as lead bioinformatician. I developed and maintained several pipelines to process NGS data, with a strong focus on human disease diagnosis with targeted resequencing and human microbiome characterization.
