Nicola Segata

Professor Nicola Segata is a computational biologist at the CIBIO Department of the University of Trento (Italy). His lab (http://segatalab.cibio.unitn.it/) employs experimental meta'omic tools and novel computational approaches to study the diversity of the microbiome across conditions and populations and its role in human diseases and infections. The projects in the lab bring together computer scientists, microbiologists, statisticians, and clinicians and are generally focused on profiling microbiomes with strain-level resolution and on the meta-analysis of very large sets of metagenomes with novel computational tools.
