Care was taken to form groups balanced in terms of the students' educational background. This encouraged students to help one another.

Resumé

I graduated in Biology at the University of Évora, Portugal. For approximately five years (2002-2006) I did research at the Comparative and Molecular Endocrinology Laboratory of the Centre of Marine Science of the University of Algarve, in Portugal. In 2007 I attended the first year of the masters in Biomedical Informatics in the University of Lisbon and in 2008 I joined the PhD Program in Computational Biology.
