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.

Jesús Mendieta Gómez, PhD. Scientist at the Center for Molecular Biology “Severo Ochoa” (CBMSO, CSIC-UAM). He is expert in non-targeted and targeted molecular dynamics techniques apllied to the study of protein structure, macromolecular interactions and in silico simulation of experimental enzyme modifications.

Eduardo López-Viñas, PhD. Scientist CIBER/CSIC at the Center for Molecular Biology “Severo Ochoa” (CBMSO, CSIC-UAM). He has large expertise in homology modeling of protein structures, in silico 3D simulation of missense mutations and in evolutive analysis of protein sequences and structures. He is also expert in docking of compounds to 3D models of active centers of proteins and in rationale drug design.

Jan-Jacob Wesselink, PhD. 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.

David García Aristegui. Graduated in Chemistry. Expert in informatics: programming, database administration and grid computing. He is also expert in high-throughput docking using grid computing environments.

Fernando Martín García. Graduated in Biotechnology. Expert in Molecular Dynamics of enzymatic mechanism of GTPases. Its application to the study of the mechanism of bacterial division and to the design of antimicrobials.
