Bioinformatics at COMAV


Four people compose the bioinformatic & genomic group at COMAV:

Jose Blanca

After doing a PhD on molecular genetics moved to the COMAV institute and has worked on plant genetic variation on several horticultural species and on bioinformatics. As a bioinformatician has experience on the sequence analysis, especially on transcriptomes.


Joaquin Cañizares

He did his PhD and postdoctoral research in human molecular genetics. After his incorporation to the COMAV institute, his research moved to plant genetics and breeding under a transcriptomic and genomic approach.


Peio Ziarsolo

Before coming to COMAV, he worked in protein docking interactions in The Bioinformatics group at Principe Felipe and in the Biochemistry department at Universidad de Valencia implementing a database for yeast macroarrays experiments.


David Sánchez Matarredona

He used to research interneurons and presynaptic plasticity as a celular biologist before moving to bioinformatics. After some work in software development, he came back to academia and joined COMAV where he’s currently interested in population genomics
