Rosalba Giugno è professore associato presso il Dipartimento di Informatica dell’Università di Verona. Ha ottenuto il PhD in Informatica presso l'Università di Catania nel 2003. Per la stesura della tesi di dottorato ha trascorso tre anni di ricerca all'estero presso l'Università del Maryland lavorando con il Prof. VS Subrahmanian e la New York University con il Prof. Dennis Shasha. I suoi interessi scientifici riguardano principalmente algoritmi sui grafi e reti biologiche, l’integrazione e l’analisi di dati biomolecolari, la modellazione di sistemi biologici, e la “RNA-interference”. E’ autrice di 120 pubblicazioni, 42 in riviste scientifiche. Negli ultimi 5 anni ha prodotto 60 pubblicazioni, 26 in riviste quali “Bioinformatics”, “Nucleic Acids Research, “Database”,  “BMC Bioinformatics”, “BMC Genomics”, “Journal Of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology”, e “Nature Biotechnology”. Partecipa a diversi progetti nazionali ed europei, anche con partner industriali. Fa parte del comitato scientifico di  diversi convegni e scuole, tra cui la Jacob T. Schawartz International School for Scientific Research in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (con A. Ferro, C. Croce e il premio nobel M. Levitt). E' al servizio, come revisore, di diversi convegni internazionali e riviste scientifiche, in particolare è “review editor” di Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology. Fa parte del collegio docenti del dottorato in Biomedicina Traslazionale dell’Università di Catania. Collabora con gruppi di bioinformatica e medici dell’Università di Verona, dell'Università di Catania,  dell’istituto di genetica della Ohio State University, del Donnelly Centre dell’Università di Toronto, dello IOR Svizzera,  e della scuola di Informatica dell’Università di Tel-Aviv.

Research interests
Topic Description Research area
Bioinformatics and Natural Computing Our research is mainly focused on the following topics: 1) Discrete and algorithmic analyses of biological dynamics (metabolism and replication, and their interplay in cellular processes); 2) Informational and computational analysis of genomes (genomic dictionaries, genomic indexes, genomic distributions of specific parameters, genome representations, genome synthesis and reconstruction from dictionaries). In these research areas, theories and algorithms are investigated and software packages are developed for computational experiments and analyses. Bioinformatics and medical informatics
Life and medical sciences
Systems Biology, Computational Network Biology Design of algorithms and methods to understand biological systems using data mining and bioinformatics techniques. The focus is on biological network modeling, perturbation and analysis; classification of phenotypes by coding and non-coding expression profiles; drug synergy and mechanism of action by drug target/off-target/combination prediction.
