Hi, my name is Andrea Splendiani.
I'm a PhD student in the department of computer science at the  
University of Milano Bicocca and  currently at Institut Pasteur,  
Systems Biology Unit. Before that, I've been a research assistant at  
Genopolis, working on microarray databases.
My interests are in using semantics in the interpretation of high- 
throughput experimental data.
In detail I'm interested in evolving functional profiling approaches  
considering not just genes-to-function associations, but also the  
relations among these functions.
I'm focusing on the BioPAX ontology and I'm currently developing a  
platform that merges a systems biology analysis tool (Cytoscape) with  
a semantic web platform (currently Jena). This already supports  
visualizion of ontologies, inference support, queries. Next step  
would be to generalize terms scoring function on ontologies.
