Federico Ansaloni

PhD supervisor: Prof. Remo Sanges, Computational Genomics Laboratory

Summary of career/studies:

I got my bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology at the University of Bologna, my hometown. I then moved to Trieste where, in 2016, I got my master’s degree in Functional Genomics discussing the thesis entitled "Comparative transcriptomics for the study of physiological adaptations in Antarctic fishes". In November 2016, I started my PhD in Functional Genomics in the Computational Genomics Laboratory of prof. Remo Sanges. I'm interested in the role played by the expression of transposable elements (TEs) in the early embryo of C. elegans and mouse models and in the involvement of TEs in neurodegenerative diseases in the fly model.
