Born in Venice, 6 may 1970. Married with two kids: Anita and Nicola. Current position: Associate Professor in Ecology, Department of Biology - University of Padova. _ RESEARCH: LZ research is centered on the study of marine organisms by molecular markers. Research activity includes markers development and their application in studies ranging from molecular systematics to the study of mating systems. Most of LZ studies have been performed on populations, with a special focus on the inference of patterns of genetic structuring, of effective genetic population size and on the estimation of the historical demography of organisms relevant for conservation or management. LZ research is currently conducted also at the genome-wide and gene expression level, after the achievement of 454 high throughput sequencing of transcriptomes from non-model organisms. _ MAIN FACTS: •Teacher of Ecology, Molecular Ecology, Ecology and Population Genetics. Over 900 hours of teaching as professor. •For his research on Antarctica, LZ has been awarded with the 2004 prize "Felice Ippolito" for young researchers assigned by the Accademia dei Lincei. •69 articles on journals with Impact Factor. Total IF over 240, more than 1750 citations on ISI journals, H index = 17. LZ published on Nature, PNAS and top journal of his field such as Molecular Ecology, Advances in Marine Biology, BMC Evolutionary Biology. •The article "Strategies for microsatellite isolation: a review" (Zane et al. 2002) has been ISI fast breaking paper in the field "Environment-Ecology". •Reviewer for 20 international journals and for two international research foundations (top Reviewer for Molecular Ecology 2012: http://www.molecularecologist.com/2013/02/mol-ecol-best-reviewers/). •PI or CoPI of National and International projects, budget over 370 KE. _ Updated list of publications at http://www.researcherid.com/rid/G-6249-2010 Full cv at: http://compgen.bio.unipd.it/~molecol/ZaneL.html
