Dr Barrero is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Comparative Genomics at Murdoch University. Dr Barrero was awarded a MONBUSHO (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology, Government of Japan) Scholarship to conduct his Master (1996-1998) and Doctoral (1998-2002) studies at the Graduate School of Biological Sciences at the University of Tokyo, Japan. In 2002 he joined the “Japan Biological Information Research Center” in Tokyo as a postdoctoral fellow where he was involved in large collaborative international project aiming to functionally annotate all human genes. He coordinated the discoveries of alternative splicing isoforms and novel non-coding RNAs in the human transcriptome. In 2004 he was recruited to join the National Institute of Genetics, one of the oldest research institutes in Japan, as an Assistant Professor. There he contributed to another large international collaborative project aiming to characterize the rice transcriptome. In 2005 as part of a collaboration with Prof. Bellgard, he visited Perth and fell in love with the city. Late 2006 he joined the Centre for Comparative Genomics at Murdoch University where he has been involved in leading various bioinformatics projects within the NCRIS 5.1 (National Collaborative Research Infrastructure) initiative. Along with his NCRIS 5.1 duties Dr Barrero has been engaged in various research collaborations with local, national and international collaborators in the area of genomics and transcriptomics including microRNAs.
