Daniel Danis, Ph.D.

Associate Computational Scientist

I work on development of new algorithms designed to analyze big data to enable precision medicine

I studied Pharmacy and Normal and Pathological Physiology at Comenius University, Bratislava, Slovakia. During my PhD. study, I developed bioinformatics pipelines for analysis of Whole exome sequencing data with aim to identify DNA mutations leading to metabolic or sensory disorders.

At my current position, I work on development of novel algorithms and software tools for integrative analysis of clinical/phenotype data with high-throughput genomics data, such as long read whole genome sequencing.

This work includes ingest, curation, and management of large volumes of data which I use for training and validation of statistical models. I am also responsible for assembly of custom bioinformatics pipelines and their deployment on distributed computational systems. Finally, I work on evaluation of models on real patient data with aim to improve diagnostics and enable precision medicine.
