Stefano Lonardi's research interests include computational molecular biology, bioinformatics, genetics, epigenetics and genomics, design of algorithms, and data mining. With his collaborators, he proposed novel algorithms for denovo genome assembly (which were used to assemble the genomes of drosophila, barley and cowpea), time-series analysis (motif discovery, clustering and classification), construction of physical and genetic maps, and epigenetics (DNA methylation, nucleosome positioning) in the human malaria parasite.
In the role of Faculty Member, Stefano Lonardi contributes recommendations and reviews to the Cataloguing & Benchmarking Computational Methods Section in the Bioinformatics, Biomedical Informatics & Computational Biology Faculty, writing brief accessible comments to summarize the value of the articles and adding rating score.
The Faculty comprises Heads of Faculty, Heads of Section, Faculty Members and Associate Faculty Members, as well as an International Advisory Board.
