  1. 🎓2012-2016 Biology, Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences, The Faculty of Biology and Animal Science. PhD studies; area of study: genomics, genetics and bioinformatics; The main goal of the PhD thesis was the investigation of CNVs across 155 individuals belonging to 13 different breeds of domestic cattle (Bos taurus Linnaeus, 1758). In particular, the study comprised: (i) detecting CNV polymorphisms including their validation using different algorithms, (ii) identifying the functional and biological annotations of CNVs, (iii) describing the distribution of these polymorphisms across the genome and assessing the inter-breed and inter-individual variation in the number and distribution of CNVs.
