Titolo ricerca:Image based surface matching oriented to macromolecular functionalannotation and interaction screening

Short CV: Ivan Merelli received the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano, with a thesis about molecular surface modelling and analysis. In February 2009 he received a PhD in Computer Science from the Università di Milano Bicocca with a research about surface matching for macromolecular docking. His research activities concern the development of software for sequence based genomics and for structural proteomics researches, with particular interest in protein-protein interactions. He works actively on the implementation of high performance bioinformatics software using cluster infrastructures and grid distributed platforms. He has been involved in the development of databases and computational solutions for projects of Integrative System Biology, gene expression analyses and drug discovery. Nowadays he is researcher at Institute of Biomedical Technology of National Research Council.


Main Research Topics:

- biosequence pattern identification and genome scale analysis

- analysis of protein-protein interactions through surface matching

- drug discovery by virtual screening of large library of ligands

- data integration, mathematical modeling for System Biology

- high performance computing (supercomputing and grid platforms)
