PIDSIA Seminar by Giuseppe Marco Randazzo - Cheminformatics: the art of transforming chemistry into information
27 June 2018
Manno, Galleria 1, 2nd floor, room G1-204 @12:00
Information are essential in our everyday life.
With them, languages represent the basis to assert or deny facts.
Like people speak about something also the surrounding nature
tell us something with is own language, the “chemical language”.
As "Wittgenstein” reported in the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus
(4.002) “Everyday language is a part of the human organism and
is no less complicated than it.” we will have a walk inside the
chemical language and we will discover how we can infer
biological knowledges from molecular structures.

The speaker

Giuseppe Marco Randazzo is researcher at the IDSIA institute since November 2017.
Prior to this position he was at the University of Geneva with a postdoctoral fellowship position.
He has developed chemoinformatic and molecular modelling technologies
in Metabolomics studies and natural products bioactivity prediction.
In 2013 he got a PhD in chemical sciences under the supervision
of prof. Gabriele Cruciani at the university of Perugia.
Previously he studied chemistry and physical-organic chemistry
at the university of Catania and Perugia.
