Due to a change in job location by JVF, currently director of the Superior Polytechnical School at University of Vic, this site is currently on hold for the length of such assignment. The site will be kept up to date with respect to academic and research activity, but will not represent the current work by JVF
The trip the CBBL started in 2003 has lead to interesting bifurcations that sometimes even become main trunks in our daily activity. In addition to the basic research tasks described in other pages in this site, the lab seeks strong participation in technology transfer projects, both as a member of consortiums with leading role of the private sector or as a promoter itself of innovation. Thus, in addition to the projects mentioned below, the CBBL is currently engaged the exciting task of promoting a new start-up company on bioinformatics services for biomedicine and biotechnology:

The promotion of aScidea Computational Biology Solutions, SL, (twitter: @ascidea)is becoming an important activity in the lab. Currently, the comopany is mainly devoted to genomics services, although in a near future it will also offer proteomics and small molecule solutions. Keep tuned!
The interest in participating into the development of tools with real biomedical impact led us to join efforts with the O2HLink company, in an AVANZA project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Industry, on the development of an integrated portal for 3D visualization of biological data, ActivaCentral.

Through this FP6 STREP project, we have been engaged in the study of diagnostic and eventually prognosis on COPD patients using an integrated knowledge management to clinical data through simulation environment, which lead us to get interested in the developing of integrative tools for translational medicine.
Another FP6 STREP project, in which the lab contributed two home-developed software tools (Adun and ByoDyn) as use cases of the development and implementation of a new paradigm for quasi-opportunistic simulation of complex systems applications. The project evolved into a foundation that is currently active and engaged in other projects.
