Grigorios Georgolopoulos

Bioinformatics Team Lead

Grigorios had one too many cell cultures before converting to a full-time computational biologist. With a solid background in wetlab biology and an extensive toolset in analysis of genomic and transcriptomic data, Grigorios is able to tailor computational analyses based on the experimental setup.

During the last 6 years Grigorios was working on disentangling the temporal interplay between chromatin and transcription factors in establishing cell fate commitment and differentiation in hematopoiesis. He carried out his PhD in Altius Institute in Seattle in collaboration with Aristotle University of Thesssaloniki in Greece where he graduated from. As part of the ENCODE project, he has expertise in profiling and interrogating DNA regulatory elements.

During his last year as a post-doc, he realized what really excites him is helping people to get the most of out of their genomic data by implementing a host of computational analysis tools. Joining GeneVia felt like a natural course of things.

Now you will most likely find him exploring the latest single-cell workflow or building custom visualization tools for genomic data. He claims to be a coffee aficionado, and in his free time he is either working on his latte art or playing his favorite bouzouki tunes.
