Dr. Renesh Bedre is a Bioinformatics data scientist having 8 years of experience in Bioinformatics, statistics, and genetics. He has expertise in high-throughput transcriptome and whole genome sequencing data analysis.

He received Ph.D. from Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge, USA in 2016. Currently, He is working as a postdoctoral research associate and Bioinformatics data scientists at Texas A&M University.

He has extensive experiences in large-scale gene expression profiling, sequence assemblies, molecular biomarker discovery, functional annotation, GWAS, development of algorithms and software pipelines, and data visualization. He has worked on the genetics of simple (Rice, Arabidopsis, Brachypodium, Tomato) to complex (Sugarcane, Spartina, Cotton, Potato) plants.

He also has extensive experiences in the development of standalone software programs, automated software pipelines, web servers, and databases for analysis of large-scale datasets generated from next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms. He has strong proficiency in Python, R/Bioconductor, Perl, PostgreSQL, Bash, Django, open-source bioinformatics tools, high-performace computing (HPC), CyVerse, and GitHub.
