ESR Supervisory Team

Dr. Istvan Nagi


Dr. István Nagy has a PhD in Molecular Immunology (Univ. of Szeged, Hungary) and a MSc in Molecular Biology (Univ. of Pécs, Hungary). He spent 3 years as a post-doctoral fellow at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC, Strasbourg, France) studying the epigenetic control of cell fate determination before returning to Hungary (BAYGEN Institute, Szeged). His main research topic is the innate immune system of the skin, focusing on the intimate relationship of commensal microorganisms and the host cells. He utilizes the power of next-generation sequencing in order to identify mutations accounting for pathogeneticity and antibiotic resistance occurring in skin commensals.

Apart of his research group, Dr. Nagy is heading the Next-Generation Sequencing Platform of the BAYGEN Institute, which operates with two next-generation sequencing instruments (SOLiD 4 and 5500xl SOLiD System). He is also a co-founder of the privately owned biotechnology company SeqOmics Ltd. which operates, among others, an Ion Torrent PGM instrument


Early Stage Researcher

Sumeet Deshmukh (IN)  ESR Project 10


My name is Sumeet R. Deshmukh, completed my bachelors in Bioinformatics in Aurangabad, India. Thereafter, I moved to Pune to get my Master’s degree in Bioinformation. My master’s project thesis was based on, application of Machine Learning in Image analysis. After completing my Master’s I moved to Bangalore, India in the Organization called as Strand Life Sciences Pvt. Ltd. In the tenure of 3 years in Strand Life Sciences I worked on different challenges in NGS, Microarray and Metabolomics data analysis, in Strand Life Sciences I got a chance to work with renowned university all over the world including University of California, Los Angeles, which helped me to gain knowledge in the NGS data analysis (RNA-Seq, DNA-seq, Chip-Seq etc) and in Microarray data analysis.
Now I have started my Ph.D. under Dr. Istvan Nagy at Seqomics LTD. I look forward to working with all ESRs closely and build the network and expand my knowledge in the field of Bioinformatics and all related fields.
