Dr. Christos A. OuzounisChristos A. Ouzounis, Ph.D. is Visiting Professor at University of Toronto, Associate Researcher and Principal Investigator at CERTH, Secretary at Mikrobiokosmos, BoD member at Hellenic Society for Computational Biology & Bioinformatics, and Associate Editor at Public Library of Science (PLoS).
His research interests include genome structure, function and evolution, evolution of protein function, evolution of genetic information-processing systems, theory and applications of biological sequence comparison, data and knowledge representation for genomics, unsupervised machine learning in very large datasets, biologically-inspired hardware & software engineering, synthetic biology, exobiology, and science communication.
His papers include An efficient algorithm for large-scale detection of protein families, Expansion of the BioCyc collection of pathway/genome databases to 160 genomes, Detection of Functional Modules From Protein Interaction Networks, GeneRAGE: a robust algorithm for sequence clustering and domain detection, Genome-wide identification of genes likely to be involved in human genetic disease, The net of life: Reconstructing the microbial phylogenetic network, Genome evolution reveals biochemical networks and functional modules, and Comparative Genomics of Transcriptional Control in the Human Malaria Parasite Plasmodium falciparum.
Christos earned his BSc in Biological Sciences at Aristoteleion Panepistimion Thessalonikis, Greece in 1987. He earned his MSc in Biological Computation at the University of York, United Kingdom in 1988. He earned his Ph.D. in Bioinformatics at the University of York, United Kingdom in 1992.
