Roderic Guigó obtained his PhD in 1988 for work on Evolutionary Ecology from the University of Barcelona. He did postdoctoral research in Computational Genomics with Temple F. Smith at Harvard and Boston Universities, and with James W. Fickett at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico (US). In 1994 he joined City Institute for Medical Research (IMIM) in Barcelona. Currently, he coordinates the Bioinformatics and Genomics program at the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG), and he is a Bioinformatics Professor at University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. He participated in the human genome project, as well as in many other genomic and functional genomics projects, such as ENCODE, GTEx, BluePrint and GA4GH. For the Human Cell Atlas, he is also member of the Data Coordination Platform Governance Group and co-chair of the Ethics Working Group. Guigo's main research interests are in the understanding and modeling the regulated production of RNA in eukaryote cells.
