Fatoumata Gnine FOFANA PhD student in Bioinformatics at the Doctoral School of Science and Technology of Bamako. Her research focuses in ‘In silico analysis of protein-protein interaction networks between Human and P. falciparum for the design of therapeutic candidates’.Currently she is working on a project entitled ‘Protein-protein Docking of Human B3AT with its Plasmodium falciparum interactors based on Short Linear Motifs (SLIMs)’ and funded by NIH Fogarty supported training grants: West African Center of Excellence for Global Health Bioinformatics Research.
Holder of an MSc in Bioinformatics in 2017 from the University of Sciences, Techniques and Technologies of Bamako / African Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics (USTTB/ACE). During my MSc degree, my research focuses on Human and Malaria parasite protein-protein interactions based on Short Linear Motifs (SLIMs) that have been conducted in the Laboratory of Bioinformatics, biostatistics, and biomathematics (BIMs) at the Pasteur Institute of Tunis.
And at the same time, I participated in a research project which consists of the identification of malaria targets and the design of inhibitors using structural bioinformatics tools.She followed a 3-month online training course as a participant in 2019 with the University of Cape Town on ‘Introduction to Genomic Medicine Training in Africa’.
In 2020, she has been involved in online training Course for 3 months as a Teacher assistant organized by the University of Cape Town. Even this year 2021 she is in the same role (course ongoing).She had the opportunity to participate in various scientific communications and workshops in the field of bioinformatics (Data Sciences, Metagenomics) that took place in Morocco, Nigeria, India also in Mali.
The last 3 years she was involved in several Bioinformatics promotion in Mali also funded by NIH Fogarty supported training grants: West African Center of Excellence for Global Health Bioinformatics Research.
