Her research interests were for long time focused on experimental studies aiming to clarify regulatory mechanisms controlling mitochondrial biogenesis and molecular basis of human mitochondrial diseases (1989 -1995). Since 1996 her research interest has been extended to Bioinformatics, in particular to the development of biological databases for the management and analysis of mitochondrial sequences, their pathological variants and proteins. These activities were carried out within different research projects at national and European levels. Presently, she is leading a research project in collaboration with the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Bari, aiming to the development of new computational tools which exploit data and graph mining techniques to highlight the role of miRNAs on post-transcriptional control of genome expression. She is also collaborating in the analysis and interpretation of transcriptomics data for the study of the functional role of the tumour suppressor p53 family members in cellular proliferation and in the intracellular transduction of growth signals. She is authors of about 25 scientific publications in Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics.
