Hi there 👋 Im Nelly Sélem-Mojica

I'm starting my research group at CCM. I’m interested in developing bioinformatic tools to study microorganism’s comparative genomics and evolution. The lab philosophy is the Charles Gordon's always valid thought: "We are all smart. Disntiguish yourself for being kind. "

  • 🔭 We are currently working on metapangenomics.
  • 🌱 Our group is learning by teaching metagenomics and pangenomics tools.
  • 👯 I love collaborative work. As an example here is our Metagenomics lesson and the Pangenome Wikipedia article.
  • 🤔 We are looking for collaborations with wetlab work.
  • 💬 Ask me about bioinformatics education
  • 📫 How to reach me:
  • 😄 Pronouns: She
  • ⚡ Fun fact: I always say yes to an skating invitation.

Additional information

I am a professor at the Center for Mathematical Sciences at UNAM in Morelia. I earned a degree in Mathematics from theUniversity of Guanajuato and a master’s degree from CIMAT. Then, I did a Ph.D. and a Post-doctorate in Integrative Biology at the Evolution of Metabolic Diversity lab at Langebio-Cinvestav. I care about teaching. I have taught at leading México Universities: UNAM, ITESM, IPN, and CINVESTAV, and I also developed open-source lessons for "The Carpentries"". I'm a founder member of BetterLab, a biotechnology and software startup, and I'm also a member of the Mexican SARS-CoV-2 Genomic Surveillance Consortium. As a scientist, I have proposed and developed bioinformatics solutions to biological problems of comparative genomics of microorganisms. I am interested in the genome evolution of Archaea, Bacteria, and Fungi. For my work, I received the L'oréal award for women in science in 2021. Everything is teamwork, and that is what I expect from my students. Life-work balance is essential, and family and social contribution matter to me. I like to skate and share, and because of that, I’m a member of the development program Girls Hockey League Mexico.
