Our Team

The SBCBLab has a solid history of research in the field of Bioinformatics, with several publications in the area. The group has a wide knowledge in the field of Artificial Intelligence, with emphasis on Machine Learning, Metaheuristics and Massively Parallel Processing in the design and development of methods and algorithms for molecular docking problems, protein structure prediction, molecular dynamics, transcriptomic data, systems biology, including analysis of co-expression networks, regulatory networks and protein-protein interaction, and post transnational gene regulation (alternative splicing, miRNAs and lncRNAs).
