My presentation on iGEM got the prize for best presentation at the Complex Networks 2017 conference in Lyon, France ! In this work, we investigate criteria of performance and success of teams in a scientific context. We leverage laboratory notebooks edited on wiki websites by student teams participating to the international Genetically Engineered Machines (iGEM) synthetic biology competition to uncover what features of team work best predict short term quality (medals, prizes) and long term impact (how the biological parts that teams engineer are re-used by other teams). Thanks to the organizers for the nice award (and I got two beautiful pens :))!
These are the slides for a talk I gave at Pasteur Institute and at Sanofi R&D in October 2017.
I elaborated these slides for an introductory class on Network Medicine given at UPV Valencia in October 2017.
I will have the chance to be a co-organizer of the International Conference of Complex Systems 2018 (ICCS18) in Cambridge, MA (USA)! This conference has two major aims: first, to investigate those properties or characteristics that appear to be common to the very different complex systems now under study; and second, to encourage cross fertilization among the many disciplines involved. More info soon!
