Dr Lorenzo Bomba
This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.
I am a postdoctoral fellow with a wide range of experience in molecular biology and genomic data analysis. I was trained in quantitative genetics in animal breeding, and recently switched to human genetics. My objective now is study genetic predisposition to complex disease using large-scale metabolomics studies (mGWAS), with the final aim to developed safe and effective therapies.
I graduated from Perugia University (Italy) with a master degree in science and technology of animal production in 2007. I won a Socrates program scholarship at SLU University, in Uppsala, Sweden, working on microsatellite analysis in 2006. I later moved to the Institute of Zootechnics, Faculty of Agriculture, Università Cattolica del S. Cuore (Piacenza, Italy). From 2009 to 2011, I completed the Agrisystem doctoral school program, receiving the Ph.D. degree in Animal Science in 2012. During this period I spent six months at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute to train in SNP array and sequence data analysis and genome-wide association studies. I was involved in several national and European projects aiming to study various aspects of animal biology using genomic data analysis in livestock species. In 2014-2015 I spent 8 months at the AgriBio Research Institute, located in Melbourne, Australia working on WGS data searching for signature of selection in African Cattle.
