Hello! I’m Francisco, a Dsc. student in animal science and pastures at the Luiz de Queiroz College of Agriculture at the University of São Paulo (USP). I have experience in animal breeding, genetics, and molecular biology. Currently, my research focuses on Multi-Omics Data integration methods applied to Nellore meat tenderness. During my M.Sc., I worked to identify potential biomarkers associated with feed efficiency as well as to understand the molecular process that explains feed efficiency variation.
Outside of my professional life I enjoy cooking, drawing and spending time with family.
Understand the gaps between phenotype and genotype using quantitative genetics, omics data, bioinformatics and statistics.
Research how Artificial Inteligence methods can be applied to animal breeding and animal production.
“The whole biology is thus a counterpoint between two themes:
1-“astonishing variety in individual particulars;
2-“astonishing constancy in fundamental mechanisms”
