Current research projects

  • NOVELSEQ (Spanish Ministry MINECO, 2016): Novel methods for new challenges in the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data such as the application of long reads to the transcriptome study, the transcriptome assays of single cells and the integration of multi-omic data.
  • Integrative Analysis of TEDDY data to improve T1D diagnosis (Helmsley Charitable Trust, USA, 2016): Integrative analysis of  multiomics, nutritional, demographic and clinical data from a cohort of 1.000 T1D patients to find Type 1 Diabetes triggers.
  • A Novel Antimicrobial Approach To Combat Huanglongbing D. (USDA-SCRI, USA, 2015): Computational modelling of detoxification pathways in citrus using RNA-seq data to investigate response to greening disease treatment.
  • ChroMe (H2020, European Comision, 2015):  Training network to study the nexus between chromatin and metabolism for understanding the epigenetic adaptation in metabolic health and disease.
  • Functional analysis at the isoform resolution (University of Florida Start-up package, 2014): Development of a computational methodology to investigate the functional impact of alternative splicing, using long read technologies.
