Gabriel obtained a Master Degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology at the University of Florence. His main research interests are related to comparative genomics, metagenomics and dynamics of gene evolution. During his Master thesis in the group of Molecular Anthropology
of Florence University, he explored the possibility to reconstruct the oral microbiome of several ancient Humans through metagenome shotgun analysis on aDNA retrieved from teeth-associated dental calculus. During his experience he focused on bioinformatics analysis, using several tools and pipelines, and developing a strong passion for computational methods. His actual interest is related to the application of bioinformatics approaches, including scripting and programming, for the analysis of NGS and Omics data (e.g. RNA-Seq, WGS).
