Sebastiano Busato

Sebastiano Busato joined EnBiSys as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in October of 2021. His research interests include the use of data science and AI to provide quantitative insights and aid in decision-making for a variety of agricultural and biological scenarios, with a particular focus on large-scale genomic datasets such as those generated via next-generation sequencing. Currently, his work focuses on modeling uncertainty in the gap gene network of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Additionally, he provides support in other EnBiSys projects, primarily designing data management solutions. Sebastiano, who is originally from Italy, obtained his B.S. in Agronomy from Zamorano University in Honduras, and his Ph.D. in Animal Science from Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR. His graduate work focused on molecular aspects of lipid nutrition in dairy cows, evaluating the transcriptomic response to dietary long chain fatty acids.
