Gustavo C. Cerqueira, Ph.D.

Gustavo C. Cerqueira is a senior computational scientist working under the direction of Daniel Neafsey in the Genome Assembly & Analysis Group, part of the Genomic Center for Infectious Diseases (GCID) at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. His research consists of identifying the genetic causes of infectivity, pathogenicity, and resistance to drugs and antibiotics in human and livestock pathogens by applying genotype-phenotype association methods based on gene content, single nucleotide polymorphisms, and structural variations on the genome.

Prior to joining the Broad Institute in 2011, Cerqueira was a research associate at the Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS) of the University of Maryland School of Medicine. He also has previous experience as a bioinformatics engineer working at The Institute for Genomic Research in Rockville, Maryland.

Cerqueira holds a Ph.D. in bioinformatics from Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (Brazil) and completed his postdoctoral studies at the University of Maryland, College Park.
