About Me

Manuel focused on the human genome since the very beginning of his career, being one of the first consumers to sequence and his own genome and those of close family members, which he published as the Corpasome. At the Sanger Institute in Cambridge, he developed methods for integration, visualisation and analysis of genomic data, and was also a Scientific Programmer at the European Bioinformatics Institute. In addition, he has led research on animal and plant genome at the Genome Analysis Center and was Scientific Lead at Repositive, a start-up specialized in sharing and storing genomes of different types. As well as his work at Cambridge Precision Medicine, Manuel is a Tutor at the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education and also teaches online courses in precision medicine in both English and Spanish.
