Symposium of the Polish Bioinformatics Society 2023 — Keynote Speakers
We are delighted to present you with the keynote speakers for the PTBI Symposium 2023:
Head of Machine Learning Research, Vice President, Pfizer, Berlin, Germany
Title of a talk: Molecular representation learning for drug discovery
Research Professor Institute for Integrative Systems Biology- Spanish National Research Council, Spain
Ana Conesa is Research Professor at the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (CSIC) in Valencia (Spain), Courtesy Professor at the University of Florida. Since 2022 she is a member of the Spanish Royal Academy of Engineer and of the Board of Directors of the International Society for Computational Biology.
Ana Conesa’s lab is interested in understanding functional aspects of gene expression at the genome-wide level and across different organisms. Her group has developed statistical methods and software tools that analyze the dynamics aspects transcriptomes, integrate these with other types of molecular data and annotate them functionally, with a special focus on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data. A strong drive in her research is helping the genomics community to bridge the gap between data and knowledge by creating bioinformatics tools that everybody can use. Some of our popular software tools are Blast2GO, PaintOmics, maSigPro, NOISeq, Qualimap, SQANTI, tappAS, etc. She has led multiple EU projects to develop methods for the analysis of the transcriptome, more recently with a focus on the utilization of long read sequencing to characterize transcriptome complexity. She is also co-founder of Biobam Bioinformatics, a start-up that provides bioinformatics tools for biologists. She has published 156 research papers that have received more than 34.000 citations and has an h-index of 57.
