Curriculum Vitae
Professor Taccioli is an Associate Professor at the University of Padova and is in charge of the MAPS Bioinformatics Laboratory. The MAPS Bioinformatics Laboratory is part of M.A.P.S Department (Department of Animal Medicine, Production and Health) at University of Padova. The mission of the Department is to maintain high-quality expertise in animal husbandry, food science and public health. The research carried out in the Department encompass most of the fields of modern biology and veterinary at various levels of organisation, from molecules to organisms in a biomedical and evolutionary perspective. Professor Taccioli has a Master degree in "Molecular Biology", a PhD in "Pharmacology and Molecular Oncology" and a BS.C in "Biostatistics". He has previously worked at the University of Bologna, University of Ferrara, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, at The Ohio State University (OSU) and at University College London (UCL). His research activity focuses on Genomics (including cancer genomics and pathology genomics) and Population Genetics. His group performs biostatistics analyses using data obtained from high-throughput sequencing (NGS) such as: Whole Genome Sequencing, Whole Exome sequencing, RNA-Seq, and ChIP-Seq. The programming languages used to develop tools are: Python, R and C++.
