Sebastiano Busato joined theEnBiSys Lab as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in 2021. His research uses data science, large-scale genomic datasets and AI to provide quantitative insights and aid in decision-making in a variety of agricultural and biological contexts. Sebastiano is currently working on modeling uncertainty in the gap gene network of Drosophila. Additionally, he provides support to other EnBiSys projects by designing data management solutions.
Originally from Italy, Sebastiano obtained a B.S. in Agronomy from Zamorano University in Honduras, and a Ph.D. in Animal Science from Oregon State University. His graduate work focused on molecular aspects of lipid nutrition in dairy cows by evaluating the transcriptomic response to dietary long chain fatty acids.
