Antonio Muñoz (CIBIO-InBIO/UP) | January 30, 2015 - 15h00 | CIBIO-InBIO’s Auditorium, Campus de Vairão




Bioinformatics has become an essential part of every work in science since we have entered in "The Information Age". With the rising of computing, the information flow has changed from studying a single gene to studying a whole population’s genes, analyzing its own variability. This seminar will focus on my previous research in Bioinformatics and will describe the studies I was involved into, in order to provide –from my part- for a comprehensive view of the possibilities that the newly formed Bioinformatics group may offer to the groups working at CIBIO-InBIO.
The speech will be divided in two topics:
-Genomic projects support. In this section I will point out my experience on several levels in genomic projects like sequencing, transcriptomics, markers detection or annotation.
-Software development. I will present some algorithms as an example of what can be done to cover the necessities of the people working in a laboratory.


Antonio Muñoz has graduated from Biology department at the University of Málaga (España) in 2005. He completed a post-graduate Master in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics in 2007 and moved to the computer science group at University of Málaga to perform his PhD studies. During this time he was member of the National Institute of Bioinformatics in Spain (INB) at the node 5 (GN5-Bioinformatics and Information Technologies) and finished his PhD studies in Bioinformatics in 2013. He has recently moved to Porto to CIBIO-InBIO to provide for Bioinformatics support to the research groups of the institute that require it.
