The Team

The excellent scientific team of biomol-informatics is composed by professionals specialized in bioinformatics solutions applied to actual biomedical and biotechnological issues.

Researchers and Founders:

Paulino Gómez-Puertas, PhD, leads the Molecular Modeling Group at the Center for Molecular Biology “Severo Ochoa” (CBMSO, CSIC-UAM). He is Honorary Professor of the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM). His research is focused on the integration of evolutive and structural information for the in silico simulation of macromolecules function.

Jan-Jacob Wesselink, PhD. Head of BIOMOL-NGS team. Executive Master in Business Administration. Scientist Biomol-Informatics / CBMSO. PhD in Bioinformatics; he is expert in genome analysis and in the use of computational tools for next-generation sequencing. He has large experience in the study of (conservation of) alternative splicing and alternative transcripts in genomes.
