About

I’m a computational biologist at theĀ Center for Genomic Science of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT@SEMM).

With a degree in computer sciences and a specialization in bioinformatics, I developed during a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology several databases and tools for the storage and manipulation of Molecular Interaction (MI) data (MINT, Domino, HomoMINT, etc.). This has been possible through a participation in consortium like the Protein Standard Initative (PSI-MI) and the International Molecular Exchange consortium (imex).

In the Structural Bioinformatics and Network Biology group (http://sbnb.irbbarcelona.org), I used this experience in the field of network biology, for instance to identify novel drug targets in Gram-negative bacteria.

At the Italian Institute of Technology, in the Computational Research Unit of the Center for Genomics (http://cru.genomics.iit.it) I’m now focusing on the development of tools and servers for the analyses of genomic data.

This is a professional website (you won’t find any personal stuff here), I’m using it mostly to keep trace of my thoughts on my and others works, hoping it will be useful for other researchers and colleagues. You can also follow me on twitter. I’m also trying to help when possible on BioStar.
