Giorgio Grillo

Giorgio Grillo obtained a degree in Computer Science in 1993 at the University of Bari Aldo Moro with a thesis on Parallel Computing environment applied to Algorithms for biological sequence analysis. From 1994 he has started to cooperate with the CNR Bari BioInformatics Group for software development in Genomics and Transcriptomics and in 2001 he became Researcher at the Institute of Biomedical Technologies of the CNR of Bari. The main research activities are: design, development e management of specialized biological databases, international milestones (UTRdb/UTRsite, MitoNuc/MitoRes, p53FamTag e PlantPis); Method development and algorithm implementation for both analysis and functional annotation of biological sequences, widely used by the scientific community (CleanUp, PatSearch, CSTminer e GeneUp). In the last few years he has undertaken the tuning of systems for management, integration and structural/functional annotation of "omics" data generated by Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) platforms. He has specialized in assembling complex pipelines/workflows for various analysis fields and in the implementation of both Web Applications and Web Tools. He has been involved in several national and international research projects and he is author/coauthor of about 40 papers on international Bioinformatics journals.
