Dr Toni Reverter
Shortly after graduating from a B.Sc. in Veterinary Sciences from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain, Toni was awarded an INIA/USDA PhD scholarship and in 1990 was enrolled into Colorado State University to pursue a double degree of MS in Statistics (Linear Models) and a PhD in Animal Sciences (Quantitative Genetics). In 1995, Toni joined the Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit (AGBU) at the University of New England in Armidale, Australia. Since 2002, Toni has been based in Brisbane with CSIRO Agriculture where he is now a Senior Principal Research Scientist and Research Team Leader of Computational and Systems Biology.
His team boasts skills in statistical, quantitative and molecular genetics, RNA expression analysis, genome assembly, next-generation sequencing, whole-genome association studies and gene network inference. In addition to being physically embedded with the molecular biologists, the Team is well acquainted with the latest computer infrastructures including GPU-enabled desktops, multi-screen visualizations systems and cluster computers hosted at the CSIRO high-performance super-computer facility.
