Saverio Vicario

The information published in this page are entirely managed by SAVERIO VICARIO who is completely responsible for it.

Saverio Vicario is a Researcher in CNR , Bari since 2006 and in staff since 2011. Bachelor degree in Zoology in "TorVergata" University (Rome) and PhD in ecology and evolutionary biology in Yale University. Its work produced peer reviewed articles in molecular systematics and genome evolution and biodiversity. From a methodological point of view he has interest in developing and refining statistical methods to study biodiversity with special attention to phylogenetic approach and to observation obtained with a environmental sequencing. From a biological point of view has interest in the mode of evolution of mitochondrial genome and its contribution to organism adaptation. He participate to the Italian LifeWatch Network and he is member of the SIBE (Italian Society of Evolutionary Biology) and BITS (Bioinformatics Italian Society).

Interest areas:

Bioinformatics: phylogenetic methods, distance between phylogenetic tree, phylogenetic diversity.
Molecular biology: codon usage bias evolution mitochondrion molecular evolution
