, professor at the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB) of Politecnico di Milano, won his second ERC Advanced Grant
with GECO Project
, "Data-Driven Genomic Computing
". In 2008 Prof. Ceri won his first ERC Advanced Grant with the SeCo project
).ERC Advanced Grants
are designed to allow research leaders of any nationality and any age to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects in Europe.
The objective of GeCo project
is to rethink genomic computing through the lens of basic data management, using new models, languages and tools for their analysis and management, supported by solid abstractions and efficiently operating on "cloud" systems. Through the extensive use of public databases, it will be possible to provide answers to fundamental biological problems, such as the development of cancer or their dependence on the environment.
