Felipe da Veiga Leprevost

Bioinformatician
Let's Connect
With a BS in Biological Sciences and in Systems Analysis I have been working with molecular biology since 2005. During my PhD in Bioinformatics I specialized in computational proteomics, development methods and techniques for shotgun proteomics.

Who is Felipe Leprevost?

Felipe currently holds a double major, the first one in Biological Sciences where he specialized in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Microparasitology. His second major was in Systems Analysis and Development with emphasis on distributed systems. Holds an MA in Cell and Molecular Biology by Fiocruz - RJ since 2009 where he worked in a molecular biology laboratory characterizing proteins with unknown function.
Has recently concluded a PhD in bioinformatics and computational biology at the Instituto Carlos Chagas - ICC / Fiocruz - PR where he works with computational proteomics developing methods and tools for shotgun proteomics.

Biological Skills

During my scientific initiation and my master's program I dealt with different wet-lab techniques in molecular biology including DNA sequencing by Sanger, DNA and protein gel electrophoresis, cloning (traditional and Gateway system) and protein expression. I also have experience in bacterial and parasite culture and cell preparation for different microscopy techniques using light and electrons emission.

I also have knowledge about the latest next-gen sequencing technologies covering sample preparation and basic analysis. Currently I'm working with the latest mass spectrometry technologies available, dealing with basic sample preparation and data analysis.

Oswaldo Cruz Institute, Fiocruz - PR

PhD in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

I'm currently working with computational proteomics, more specifically with tools and technique development for shotgun proteomics. For my thesis I'm developing a new algorithm for de novo protein sequencing analysis aiming to improve the current status of this important technique.

Oswaldo Cruz Institute, Fiocruz - RJ

Master's Degree in Molecular & Cell Biology

During my Master's degree program I have worked with the characterization of proteins with unknown function. Our model organism was Trypanosoma cruzi a flagellate parasite with almost 50% of its protein coding genes classifies as hypotetical proteins.
