Thiago Sanches

Thiago Sanches is a Ph.D. student in integrative genetics and genomics at the University of California Davis. His work focuses on optimizing and validating genetic tools for management and biomonitoring of threatened species in the San Francisco Estuary. His interest in genetics began with an internship at the laboratory of molecular embryology of vertebrates at the University of Sao Paulo, where he validated the CRISPR technology in chick embryos. When not in the laboratory, Thiago can be seen cycling through the country roads of the Californa Central Valley.
