Fernando Cruz is a Postdoctoral Bioinformatician at CNAG-CRG (The National Center for Genomic Analysis, Barcelona, Spain) where he is working in the “Genome Assembly and Annotation Team” lead by Tyler Alioto. He obtained his PhD at the University of Vigo, after carrying out several works in Population and Molecular Genetics. Right after, he moved to the Smurfit Institute of Genetics (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland) to work in a Comparative Genomics Study that involved Bioinformatics. In the following years, he worked for one year at the EBC (Uppsala University, Sweden) and two years and a half in the Evolutionary Bioinformatics Laboratory (Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne), gaining considerable knowledge and experience in Bioinformatics, Programming and Genomics. In 2011, he was hired at EBD-CSIC (Seville, Spain) where he played an important role in the Iberian Lynx Genome Project. Since 2014, has been actively working in several "De novo Assembly" Projects at the CNAG-CRG that ended up in the release of the Genome Sequence of the Olive, Almond, Silver Fir and Drosophila guanche.
