was founded on 2009 in Barcelona, and moved to Seville in 2013. It is located at the CABD since 2018.
Our main interests deal with protein evolution
and its relationship with structure /function
We are also interested in using transcriptomic data
to address different biological questions.
Our research has resulted in more than 50 peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, invited reviews, and over 50 oral presentations in national and international venues.
Members of the group have continued their careers as Group Leaders, Heads of Bioinformatics platforms, and some became CEOs of bio-tech based companies.
We are a team of Biologists, Bioinformaticians, and Engineers using computational methods, aiming to understand:
- how proteins evolve and acquire novel functions
- how mutations impact a given protein function
- how can we improve function annotation in no model organisms.
