Fabio C. P. Navarro

Welcome to my website!

I am a Bioinformatics Science Manager at Personalis, Inc., where my primary goal is to leverage computational approaches and data science to find novel biological insights and help shed light on the human genome.

My research is focused on understanding genomic variations resulting in phenotypic variations in eukaryotic genomes, under healthy and pathogenic conditions. I am particularly interested in understanding the origin of genetic variation across and within individuals, populations, and species. I am also passionate about studying large structural variations such as retrotransposition, rearrangements, and translocations. To better understand these topics, I use novel computational methodologies and cutting-edge sequencing technologies to investigate genomes, transcriptomes, and epigenomes. More recently, I have been focusing on the biology of tumors, particularly the shedding of tumor DNA into patients' plasma and the tumor microenvironment. This is an exciting and rapidly evolving field, and I am thrilled to be a part of it. If you want to learn more about my research, please visit my research page.
