Raffaele Calogero became associated professor of Molecular Biology at the University of Naples in 1992, after three years as fellow at Max Planck Institute (Berlin, DE) and five years as R&D researcher at Sorin Biomedica SpA (Saluggia, I). He started his activity in the area of bioinformatics in 1997 creating the Bioinformatics and Genomic unit (B&Gu). In 1998 he moved to Torino University where he consolidated the structure of B&Gu, which is now an interdisciplinary group devoted to the study of complex diseases by mean of high-throughput transcriptomics/genomics data analysis and mining. B&Gu acts tightly in contact with the System Biology group at Computer Science Dept. of University of Torino. B&Gu has wide network of interactions with Academia and industries in Italy and all over the world. Bioinformatics formation of biologists is one of the objectives of Raffaele Calogero which organizes and run bioinformatics courses since 2002. The courses were initially focused on Affymetrix technology (2002 – 2011) and now they are mainly based on RNAseq data analysis (2012-present).
