Genomics of Gene Expression Lab (I2SysBio)
I am a Research Professor at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). I graduated as Agricultural Engineer at the Polytechnical University of Valencia in 1993 and obtained my PhD in Molecular Microbiology at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands with a research project at the Microbiology Department of the Dutch Institute for Food Research (TNO). After a short appointment as Bioinformatics project leader at the same institute, I obtained a Ramon y Cajal award and joined the Valencia Agricultural Research Institute (Spain) in 2003 to develop bioinformatics tools for citrus genomics. I moved into CIPF in 2007 and became Senior Group Leader in 2010, creating the Genomics of Gene Expression Laboratory. From August 2014 to May 2021, I was Full professor at the Microbiology and Cell Science Department and Genetics Institute of the University of Florida. In May 2021, I joined the CSIC Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio) and became courtesy faculty of the University of Florida. In January 2022, I was elected Member of the Spanish Royal Academy of Engineering.
