Another excellent doctorate in CIR

Ivan Sović has completed his doctoral studies under the supervision of mentors Mile Šikić and Karolj Skala on the topic of: "Algorithms for de novo genome assembly from third generation sequencing data" in front of the committee: 

Professor Mladen Vučić, Ph.D. and Doc. dr. sc. Mirjana Domazet-Lošo from FER, and Dr. sc. Niranjan Nagarajan, scientific advisorfrom Genome Institute of Singapore.

Results of doctoral research and thesis are published and avaiable on:
