Raquel Lopes Costa

P​ostdoctoral researcher - ​INCA - Brazil

I'maD.Sc.in Computational Modeling at LNCC (National Laboratory for Scientific Computing, Petrópolis Brazil). MSc in Bioinformatics in same institution and undergraduate in biological science from the UFOP (Federal University of Ouro Preto).​ Currently, I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the Brazilian National Institute of Cancer INCA. My work involves themes such as ​multi-omic integration, ​oncovirology, viral infections, cancer evolution, biodiversity and microbiome using high-throughput data. I often use e-science approaches including no-SQL databases​ ​(especially graph databases), scientific workflows and HPC(High-Performance Computing). The results produced can be represented as complex interaction networks, such as co-occurrence, co-expression, network propagation and multi-omic networks (multi-layers).
