Prof. Roderic Guigó Serra

Centre de Regulació Genòmica, Universitat Pompeu Fabra

Barcelona, España





2017 11 24 Roderic portRoderic Guigó Serra se licenció en Biología en la Universitat de Barcelona en 1981, llevando a cabo su tesis doctoral en estadística, en esa misma universidad. Realizó el postdoc (1988-1993) en el Molecular Biology Computer Research Resource, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard University (Division of Biostatistics) BioMolecular Engineering Research Center, Boston University and Theoretical Biology And Biophysics Group (Los Alamos national Laboratory). En 1994 regresó a Barcelona como investigador en el Institut Municipal d’Investigació Mèdica (IMIM) y desde el año 2001 es Profesor asociado en la Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Desde 2005 es el Coordinador del Bioinformatics Programme en el Centre de Regulació Genòmica (CRG). Ha participado en dos de los grandes proyectos científicos en el ámbito de la genómica y la bioinformática: el Proyecto Genoma Humano y el proyecto ENCODE. Su nombre figura en la lista 2016 Highly Cited Researchers, con artículos publicados en las más prestigiosas revistas ( Aparece en el listado de los 100 personajes más influyentes en el devenir del año 2017 en España.

Su grupo de investigación se está centrando en los estudios de señales implicadas en especificación génica encontradas en las secuencias genómicas (promotores, sitios de splicing y de inicios de la traducción, etc), así como en sus mecanismos de reconocimiento y procesamiento, y en su evolución. Además están desarrollando software para la predicción y anotación en secuencias genómicas. Algunos de sus proyectos actuales son: evaluación de programas de predicción génica y desarrollo de su software, búsqueda de selenoproteínas en el genoma, predicción génica mediante genómica comparativa, splicing, evolución de la estructura génica y, reconstrucción filogenética

Rodric Guigó Serra studied Biology at Universitat de Barcelona (1981), where he also obtained his PhD in Statistics. He performed his postdoc (1988-1993) at the Molecular Biology Computer Research Resource, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard University (Division of Biostatistics) BioMolecular Engineering Research Center, Boston University and Theoretical Biology And Biophysics Group (Los Alamos national Laboratory). Since 1994 he is an investigator at Institut Municipal d’Investigació Mèdica (IMIM), Barcelona, and since 2001 is an Associate Professor at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, and coordinator of the Bioinformatics Programme at the Centre de Regulació Genòmica. He has participated in two of the main international scientific projects in genomics and bioinformatics: the Human Genome Project and the ENCODE project. His name appears in the 2016 Highly Cited Researchers, with papers published in the most prestigious journals ( He is listed in the 100 most influent people in Spain for 2017.

His research group focuses on the investigation of the signals involved in gene specification in genomic sequences (promoter elements, splice sites, translation initiation sites...). They are interested both in the mechanism of their recognition and processing, and in their evolution. In addition, the group is also involved in the development of software for gene prediction and annotation in genomic sequences. Some of their current projects are: Evaluation of gene prediction programmes and related software, genome-wide search for selenoproteins, gene prediction by comparative genomics, splicing, gene structure evolution and, phylogenetic reconstruction.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain web pages.

    • Own cookies: those that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
    • Third party cookies: those that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies. When cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies.

  2. Cookies according to the period of time they remain activated

    Depending on the length of time that they remain activated in the terminal equipment, we can distinguish:

    • Session cookies: type of cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are usually used to store information that only is kept to provide the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g. a list of products purchased).
    • Persistent cookies: type of cookies in which the data is still stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.

  3. Cookies according to their purpose

    Depending on the purpose for which the data obtained through cookies are processed, we can distinguish between:

    • Technical cookies: those that allow the user to navigate through a web page, platform or application and the use of different options or services that exist in it, such as controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, access to restricted access parts, remember the elements that make up an order, perform the purchase process of an order, make a registration or participation in an event, use security elements during navigation, store content for the broadcast videos or sound or share content through social networks.
    • Personalization cookies: those that allow the user to access the service with some predefined general characteristics based on a series of criteria in the user's terminal, such as the language, the type of browser through which the user accesses the service, the regional configuration from where you access the service, etc.
    • Analytical cookies: those that allow the person responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the websites to which they are linked.
