Vahid Omidvar, NGS Senior Scientist

Vahid Omidvar

As the NGS Senior Scientist in Functional Biosciences, Vahid supports company's NGS core through consultation with clients to design and conduct their complex NGS projects as well as development of new NGS technologies and bioinformatics pipelines.

Vahid has more than 6 years of postdoctoral experiences with diverse multidisciplinary research background, including plant molecular biology, comparative genomics and transcriptomics, bioinformatics, genome editing and transgenic systems. He received his PhD in Plant Biotechnology from University Putra Malaysia in 2012, working on development of transformation systems for tissue-specific engineering in oil palm. While completing his PhD, he joined Illumina in 2011 as NGS Application Scientist, supporting NGS and downstream bioinformatics. Later, he held two postdoctoral positions; in the Palacky University Olomouc in Czech Republic (2013-2015) and in the University of Minnesota (2015-2018), where the focus of his research was to understand the molecular basis pf plant biotic/abiotic interactions using various genomic and computational approaches. He has published more than 15 papers in peer reviewed scientific journals, and more than 20 abstracts in different conferences. Over the years, he has conducted several workshops in different disciplines, including NGS, big data analysis, trait discovery in agriculture, and markers for resistance breeding.
