About

Erick Antezana has a degreed in Systems Engineering (Catholic Bolivian University), a Master of Science in Bioinformatics (University of Geneva) and a PhD in Bioinformatics (Ghent University / Flanders Institute for Biotechnology). He is currently appointed as Scientist at Bayer CropScience (Belgium) and he also holds a position as Associated Scientist at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway). Dr. Antezana’s research is focused on the application of Semantic Web technologies for knowledge management in the life sciences. He is also interested in the area of bio-ontology engineering and biological knowledge representation. His work on applying semantic web technologies in the systems biology domain resulted in the creation of various biological knowledge bases, including BioGateway and the Cell Cycle Ontology, as well as a new approach: Semantic Systems Biology. He has also developed several software packages (e.g. ONTO-perl) to integrate and manipulate bio-ontologies. He has been invited to several meetings as keynote speaker or expert consultant in the area of biological knowledge management in the life sciences. He has served as reviewer for several journals (e.g. Bioinformatics/Oxford and Briefings in Bioinformatics).
