Hello! I’m Francisco, an animal scientist, MSc. & Ph.D. in animal science and pastures at the University of São Paulo (USP). I have experience in animal breeding, genetics, and molecular biology. During my Ph.D., at the University of São Paulo, I focused on Multi-omics integration methods applied to meat tenderness in Nellore cattle. On my MSc. research, I committed on identify potential biomarkers associated with feed efficiency as well as 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 molecular data using quantitative genetics, omics data integration, 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”
