Dr. Gnimpieba received a a PhD in biotechnology and bioinformatics at University of Technology of Compiegne (France), and a MS on computational engineering in Informatics and Mathematics for Integrative Biology at University of Evry Val D'Essonne (France). His research focus is systems and data integration in life science research, inclusing development of intuitive data acquisition and management systems for relevant knowledge discovery. The long-term goal is to develop a new decision-support knowledge base for predictive and precision bioscience and biomedicine. He has published articles in Nucleic Acid Research, Molecular Cancer Research (AACR), Molecular Biosystems journal (RSC Publishing), Faseb journal, and several conference proceedings related to computer used in Bioscience and Biomedicine.
