Guillermo Parada | PhD Student

Parada, Guillermo

The advent of high-throughput sequencing technologies is providing an unprecedented opportunity to explore the complexity of higher eukaryotes transcriptomes. My aim is to study the gene expression regulation mechanisms by analyzing high-throughput sequencing data.
