Research Interests

Research activity is oriented to investigate structure and function of bio-molecules, from molecular mechanisms of human pathologies to food and plant sciences. Techniques are based on bioinformatics, applied to molecular modelling and simulations, molecular interactions, omics data analysis, development of computational tools and data bases.
