Dr Francesco Del Carratore PhD

Lecturer in Computational Biology Biochemistry, Cell and Systems Biology


Personal Statement

Dr Francesco Del Carratore has joined the Institute of Systems, Molecular and Integrative Biology as a Lecturer in Computational Biology. His research focuses on the statistical analysis of big datasets coming from multi-omics experiment, the mathematical modelling of biological systems (e.g., genome-scale metabolic models), and processing LC/MS-based untargeted metabolomics data with a particular emphasis on metabolites annotation. Francesco completed his PhD in 2018 at the University of Manchester and previously worked as a Postdoc and Research Fellow on projects focusing on the genetic engineering of bacterial chassis for antibiotic production and on the molecular signalling governing soil microbiome interactions.
