Christian Gilissen 2018

Christian Gilissen has a master’s degree in computer science and works as a post-doc in bioinformatics within the Translation Genomics team. He is specialized in the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data and interpretation of single nucleotide variation. In 2012 he was awarded the Young Investigator Award by the Dutch bioinformatics consortium for his thesis on the identification of disease genes through next generation sequencing methods. In 2013 he obtained a Dutch veni grant to study bioinformatics methods to interpret single nucleotide variants in relation to disease. He is actively involved in the implementation of bioinformatics methods, infrastructure and automation to incorporate new technologies in diagnostics in order to improve the routine diagnostic process.
