EMBL-EBI Training

Scientific Training Officer



Dayane joined the Training team at EMBL-EBI in February 2021 as a Scientific Training Officer, working on developing and delivering a range of bioinformatics-focused courses for the life sciences community. She has developed courses in association with CABANA, ENLIGHT-TEN+, ELIXIR-CONVERGE, and is currently developing new training for the EMBL's Human Ecosystems research theme.

Before joining the training team, Dayane worked as a Technical Outreach Officer at Europe PMC, the database of life sciences publications hosted at EMBL-EBI. At Europe PMC, Dayane engaged with and created content for Europe PMC's programmatic users including researchers, curators, developers, policymakers, and funders.

Dayane completed her PhD in Microbiology at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, with part of her research conducted at the Technical University of Dresden. Her research involved the study of (1) bacterial ECF sigma factors in order to design and implement orthogonal genetic switches in Bacillus subtilis, and (2) the mechanisms of resistance against antimicrobial peptides in Streptomyces venezuelae. She gained her Msc in Molecular Biology at the Federal University of Goi's in Brazil, investigating temporal gene expression of glycans and chitin synthesis pathways during the dimorphic transition of the fungus Paracoccidioides lutzii, which is one of the agents causing the neglected disease paracoccidioidomycosis.
