Ricardo headshot

FAPESP Young Researcher

Graduated in Forestry Engineering from the Federal University of Viçosa (2007), Master in Genetics from the same institution (2010) and PhD in Genetics (with emphasis in Bioinformatics) from the University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto (2014). I have experience in the areas of Omics Sciences, Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, especially in the study of metabolism. During the postdoctoral period, I worked on the development of databases, multivariate statistics for omics data, and the application and development of quantitative methods for multidimensional data integration. My main interest is the application and development of methods for interpretation of phenotypes, using molecular information from large scale sampling techniques (Omics Sciences). I am currently developing research in the field of data science that aims to integrate different data sources and use computational statistics to elucidate altered metabolic pathways under different sampling conditions in different organisms, particularly plants and microorganisms. As a Young Researcher at FAPESP my focus is on the development of extensible and modular applications and the rational use of computational resources.

Undergraduate student

Will obtain a bachelor's degree in Biology with an emphasis in Molecular Biology and Biotecnology from the University of São Paulo. Has already gathered some experience in virology by being an intern funded by CNPq in the lab of Prof. Dr. Eurico de Arruda Neto at the Research Center for Virology - FMRP (from 2016 to 2017), focusing on the Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). Has recently been an intern at the laboratory of Prof. Dr. Xavier Saelens at VIB/Ghent University researching about RSV interacting proteins. Is currently an intern at the laboratory of Dr Ricardo R. da Silva developing a project on creating an auxiliary module to help discover chemical structures in literature by using data mining.

Carolina

Undergraduate student

I'm currently a Pharmacy-Biochemistry student at Faculdade de Ciências Farmacêuticas de Ribeirão Preto - USP. In 2019, I received a scholarship from the Institute of Advanced Studies, working with scientific diffusion in practice. In the same year, I joined the college's biochemistry laboratory, where I remained for a period of one year, developing activities with plant cell culture. I just started working with data analysis, at the Computational Chemical Biology Laboratory. Member of the Natura-USP partnership, a team studying metabolism of microbial communities on human skin.
