Frano Vučković

Frano Vučković is a PhD student at University of Zagreb and data analyst in Genos Glycoscience Laboratory. He received his M.Sc. degree in Molecular Biology at University of Zagreb in 2012. Since 2012, he has been working as data analyst in Genos, on integrative analysis of glycomics and other -omics data as part of MIMOmics and IBD-BIOM projects. His main research interest includes development of normalization and batch correction methods for high-throughput glycomics data. In order to develop methods that will efficiently remove experimental noise from glycan data the research is directed toward detailed investigation of experimental variation whose structure is modeled using complex statistical approaches such as generalized mixed models and empirical Bayes methods. He is also involved in research of regulation of IgG N-glycosylation in autoimmune diseases. Applying advanced statistical and machine learning methods in analysis of glycomics data he is investigating complex associations between disease related phenotypes and changes in IgG glycosylation patterns.
