Merico Daniele

I am a Computational Biology PostDoc at University of Toronto, co-supervised by Profs. Gary Bader and Andrew Emili. I have undergoing collaborations with the following Bimib people: Marco Antoniotti, Gianluca Colombo, Antonella Farinaccio, Italo Zoppis.
My research interests are:

  • the analysis of comprehensive gene expression profiles (e.g. transcriptomics), by data-reduction methods (e.g. PCA, clustering), gene-set enrichment (e.g. Gene Ontology), and further pathway or network profiling;
  • the representation of biological and medical knowledge;
  • on a more abstract and general level, the study of complex biological systems under a regulatory perspective.
