Dr. Joseph Petrone

Bioinformatician, American Type Culture Collection (ATCC)

Joseph Petrone received his Ph.D. from the University of Florida’s Department of Microbiology and Cell Sciences under the mentorship of Dr. Eric Triplett. With a focus in bacterial genomics and microbiome analysis, some of his works involved comparative genomics of Diaphorina citri endosymbionts, high throughput rpsL mutation screening, and metagenomic analysis of the human microbiome. As his experience in bioinformatics and next-generation sequencing grew, Joseph began working towards developing a nanopore-based pipeline for 16S-ITS-23s rRNA analysis in order to achieve species-level classifications in samples that was previously out of reach. This led to publishing the RESCUE pipeline which is now being implemented across various human microbiome studies. Joseph’s interest in curating authentic genomic databases and developing new bioinformatic software led him to American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), where he now works as a bioinformatician for the Sequencing and Bioinformatics Center. His current project is now the development and curation of the ATCC Genome Portal.
