The information published in this page are entirely managed by ANDREAS GISEL who is completely responsible for it.

Andreas Gisel is a Bioinformatician with a Diploma and PhD in Natural Science (specialized in Molecular Biology) from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich, Switzerland. He has more than 10 years' experience in molecular biology accumulated during his PhD, working for 4 years at UC Berkeley, USA and 2 years at Friedrich Miescher Institute (a Novartis foundation) in Basel, Switzerland. Over time he specialized in bioinformatics working at Novartis SA in Basel, Switzerland, focusing on cancer research and last at the Institute for Biomedical Technologies, Bari, Italy, specializing in plant-virus interaction. Over the last 20 years he developed skills in Next Generation Sequence data analysis, biological databases, and also has a long-standing experience in teaching. He was working for 3 years at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Ibadan, Nigeria and continues offering consultancy up to date. During this time at IITA he has been working with cassava, yam, and maize on gene expression analysis. He was responsible for several projects on cassava improvement and looking at molecular features to propose biotechnological approaches to increase yield, starch content, and virus resistance and to improve food quality by biofortification.

Interest areas:

NGS data analysis such as: - whole genome resequencing and assembly - RNA-seq data analysis including gene expression, alternative splicing and alley specific expression - small noncoding RNA data analysis - DNA methylation analysis
