About Andrea Telatin

Visiting bioinformatician in the Bioinformatics team, on-contract professor of "Introduction to Bash for bioinformatics". During his PhD he developed a novel scaffolding suite (ScaMPI), that has been used to assemble the genome of N. gaditana. Current research interests span from epigenomic data analysis, genome assembly and finishing, metagenomics.

PASS-BIS: A novel aligner for methylome studies

We recently published and released PASS-BIS, a modified version of the PASS aligner to enable fast and efficient bisulfite-treated reads mapping, both in color-space and in base-space. The article is online, and the PASS-BIS package is freely available for download.
