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. First at Institute of Biomedical Technology studying molecular biodiversity, then at the Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research set up Remote Sensing methods for monitoring human impact on biodiversity. 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,genome evolution, biodiversity and pheonology. From a methodological point of view he has interest in developing and refining statistical methods to study biodiversity with special attention to phylogenetic approach. He participate to the Italian LifeWatch Network and he is member of the SIBE (Italian Society of Evolutionary Biology), BITS (Bioinformatics Italian Society) and EGU (European Geoscience Union).

Interest areas:

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