scientific bio

I am Pablo Mínguez, a computational biologist interested in gene and protein regulation and their disorders under disease stages. I apply mathematical, statistical and computational methods to study complex systems of regulation from a Systems Biology perspective. My interests are focused on three main related topics: functional profiling of omic experiments, Biological Networks and protein post-translational modifications (PTMs). These three fields can be included under the global umbrella of 'functional omics' studies that are defined by a mixture between relevant scientific questions and methods development. All these with the aim of contributing with my small piece of code to the understanding of life and its diversity of forms and stages.

Don't blame me, my girlfriend said this is a reasonable nice picture.
