Andre Corvelo

Lead Bioinformatics Scientist

André Corvelo joined the New York Genome Center in January 2014 as a Bioinformatics Scientist. Originally trained as a field biologist, André started his scientific career at the Institute for Molecular and Cell Biology (IBMC) in Porto, Portugal where he studied the evolutionary dynamics of transposable elements in Drosophila. In 2010, he obtained his PhD through the Graduate Program in Areas of Basic and Applied Biology (GABBA) from the University of Porto, Portugal for his bioinformatics work about the evolution and regulation of Alternative Splicing in metazoans. His research was conducted under the supervision of Eduardo Eyras at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB), Spain. Before joining the NYGC, André was a postdoctoral fellow at the Spanish National Center for Genomic Analysis (CNAG), where he worked on the de novo assembly of several large and complex genomes from short-read data. At the NYGC, André is mostly focused on genome assembly of non-model organisms and has a strong interest in the development of innovative and efficient methods for high-throughput sequencing data analysis.
