Saverio Vicario

Saverio Vicario was a researcher in CNR -ITB, Bari since 2006 and in staff since 2011 ITB-BA. He left this Institute in October 2016, and now works at CNR – Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research.

Bio

Bachelor degree in Zoology in “TorVergata” University (Rome) and PhD in ecology and evolutionary biology in Yale University. Its work produced 16 peer reviewed articles in molecular systematics and genome evolution.

From a methodological point of view he has interest in developing and refining statistical methods within phylogenetic approach to study biodiversity in general and biodiversity observed by means of environmental sequencing. From a biological point of view has interest in the mode of evolution of mitochondrial genome and its contribution to organism adaptation.

He participate to the Italian LifeWatch Network and he is member of the SIBE (Societa Italiana di Biologia Evoluzionistica) and BITS (Bioinformatics Italian Society).

Benvenuti!

È con grande piacere che Vi diamo il benvenuto nel rinnovato sito della Sede di Bari dell’ISTITUTO DI TECNOLOGIE BIOMEDICHE che mette in pensione il precedente.

I contenuti hanno subito (e subiranno ancora) aggiornamenti e limature per tenere il passo con le molteplici attività che ci vedono coinvolti.

Speriamo che il lavoro fatto incontri il vostro favore e speriamo di rivedervi presto (e spesso) presso i nostri siti e servizi on-line.

Lo Staff.

Vito Flavio Licciulli

Vito Flavio Licciulli obtained a degree in Computer Science at University of Bari in 1992 (110/110).

Since 1994 he is involved in Bioinformatics with the Bari BioInformatics Group. He is currently a researcher at the C.N.R.- Institute for Biomedical Technologies (ITB), Bari (Italy).

His main research activities are: design, implementation and maintenance of biological databases and data-warehouses; management and integration of large amounts of biological data (BigData); development of bioinformatics analysis pipelines and WEB interfaces.

He is author/coauthor of more than 30 papers in international journals in the field of Bioinformatics, has been involved in more 20 national and international project both as participant and as a Principal Investigator, and has played in several lectures inb Bioinformatics courses/masters.

He is also responsible of database and computer server management at ITB-CNR-Bari institute.


Vito Flavio Licciulli si è laureato in Scienze dell’Informazione presso l’Università degli Studi di Bari nel 1992, con votazione 110/110, discutendo la tesi dal titolo: “Realizzazione di un sistema di interscambio dati tra ambienti CASE”.

Dal 1994 ha inizio la collaborazione con il gruppo di Bioinformatica di Bari del CNR occupandosi delle banche dati di biosequenze. Attualmente è ricercatore presso il CNR – Istituto di Tecnologie Biomediche (ITB), sede di Bari.

Le sue attività scientifiche sono: “Progettazione e sviluppo di banche dati biologiche specializzate” sviluppate sia dalla Sezione di Bari, sia in collaborazione con altre istituzioni scientifiche; “Gestione ed integrazione di grandi quantità di dati biologici (BigData)”; “Sviluppo di applicativi e pipeline di analisi bioinformatica” e “Sviluppo di applicazioni web” per la loro fruizione.

E’ autore/coautore di circa 30 articoli su riviste internazionali nel settore della Bioinformatica, ha partecipato a circa 20 progetti internazionali, nazionali e regionali di cui un paio come “Principal Investigator” per l’ITB, ed ha svolto docenze di Bioinformatica in diversi corsi/master.

Inoltre è responsabile sia della gestione e mantenimento delle banche dati biologiche, sia del supporto sistemistico dei computer server presenti presso l’istituto.

Andreas Gisel

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.
