Team Leader, Genome Analysis
Daniel Zerbino leads the Genome Analysis team, which focuses on whole genome analyses and the functional annotation of non-genic regions. He also leads a small research group. Daniel completed his PhD at EMBL-EBI, studying de novo assembly of next-generation sequencing data, and developed the Velvet assembler. After a postdoc at the University of California Santa Cruz analysing RNA-Seq data and studying the mathematics of sequence rearrangements, he returned to EMBL-EBI to lead Ensembl Regulation before leading the Genome Analysis team. Daniel's background is in mathematics and computer engineering, and he holds a joint degree from the École Polytechnique and the École des Mines in France.

The Genome Analysis team focuses on whole genome analyses to reveal genomic function. This includes the functional annotation of non-coding regions, a field which we have only started to investigate but which will likely help advance a large number of genetic association studies.
