The CBBio People

This is the people that have participated in the computational Biology and Bioinformatics lab all times

We are a team of Biologists, Bioinformaticians, and engineers using computational methods, trying to understand 1) how proteins evolve and acquire novel functions, 2) how mutations impact a given protein function, and 3) how is the relationship between molecular evolution and phenotypic evolution.

CBBio history:

CBBio was founded on 2009 in Barcelona, and moved to Seville in 2013, first at IBIS, and then to CABD

Our research has been depicted in more than 50 peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, invited reviews, and over 50 oral presentations in national and international venues.
