Ph.D., Evolutionary Biology. Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra). Barcelona, Spain
After obtaining a B.Sc. in Biotechnology at the Univeristy of Vic, Guillem started working as a bioinformatician at the Barcelona Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF) in the laboratories of Insect Metamorphosis and Insect Reproduction led by Dr. Xavier Belles and Dr. M. D. Piulachs respectively. There, he devoted five years to the study of insect genomics and transcriptomics in relation to evolution and development. During this time he obtained an M.Sc. in Omics Data Analysis and a Ph.D. in Biomedicine. After the Ph.D. he did a first postdoc at the Genomics of Gene Expression laboratory, led by Dr. Ana Conesa, at the University of Florida, where he worked on bioinformatics software development and iso-seq data analysis. After one year in Florida, he moved to the Extavour Lab to work on insect genomics and transcriptomics.
