About PerisD

Dr. Peris has a Ph.D. in Biotechnology, in 2012 at University of Valencia. David Peris has expertise in comparative genomics, fungal evolution, highthroughput microbial phenotyping, bioinformatics and biotechnological applications. He is a postdoctoral researcher in University of Oslo, Norway, since 2019. He is studying mechanisms of speciation and adaptation in mushroom-like organisms and yeasts. He is responsible of the implementation of bioinformatics tools to study the fungal genomes. He has also developed his research in four different countries: i) Institute Cavanilles of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology (2007-2012) (FPI Fellow), Spain. His main task was the genome characterization of interspecies yeast hybrids isolated from industrial processes; ii) University of Manchester (2010), UK. There, he studied the proteome composition and the formation of chimeric protein complexes in interspecies hybrids; iii) the University of Wisconsin-Madison (2012-2017) (Postdoc Researcher). He performed population genomics in wild and domesticated yeasts, he developed new molecular methods to generate synthetic hybrids, and he applied yeasts to the biofuel and brewing sectors; iv) Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology (IATA) – CSIC (2017-2019) (Marie Sklodowska Curie Postdoctoral Fellow). There, he studied the influence of the mitochondrial inheritance in yeast hybrids in the tolerance to temperature, industrial stresses and genomic retention. He also lead the application of bioinformatics pipelines to study the genome, transcriptome and other omics in Tirant HPC. Dr. Peris is co-author of 24 papers in indexed international journals , 3 reviews. More information: Publications in google scholar: Papers reviewed in publons:
