iPresCons is an Artificial Intelligence application, developed by researchers of the UPO based on a contract signed with the company DETEA, S.A. for the participation of the Research Group PAIDI Data Science & Big Data Lab (TIC 254), in the R&D project: “Predictive models for the collaborative management of estimates in client relation processes” (in Spanish, Modelos predictivos para la gestión colaborativa de estimaciones en procesos de relación con el cliente), to which DETEA, S.A. submitted to the call of the Technological Corporation of Andalusia (CTA, in Spanish). This app is useful in calculating the cost of a construction, as it predicts a price range for a specific real estate based on Machine Learning and Big Data techniques.
Universidad Pablo de Olavide – News in English
The fluorescence emitted by tiny quantum zinc oxide particles can be used to see how some substances used in the restoration of historic buildings penetrate. Researchers from the Pablo de Olavide University have verified it with samples collected in old quarries in Cadiz, from where the stone came out to build the city hall and the cathedral of Seville.
The Library of the UPO has just launched a scientific production portal in which it presents a bibliometric report whose objective is to show, in an individualized way, the indicators of the publications of this university, in order to obtain a clear image of its performance.
The project is called BrainCure: Medicina de precisión personalizada para las ENACH (BrainCure: personalised precision medicine for NBIA disorders). It has been developed by the scientific team led by the UPO lecturer José Antonio Sánchez Alcázar and is one of the four projects selected by the Spanish Foundation for Rare Diseases (FEDER) in the V Convocatoria de Ayudas a la Investigación (fifth official announcement for research grants). Its resolution has been evaluated by the Carlos III Health Institute.

Soil biodiversity is fundamental to maintain the health and functioning of terrestrial ecosystems worldwide
A study published in the prestigious journal Nature Ecology and Evolution and led by researchers from the Laboratoy of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning at Universidad Pablo de Olavide (UPO) provides novel evidence that multiple elements of soil biodiversity are fundamental for maintaining the functioning of terrestrial ecosystems across global biomes.
UPO researchers create ‘in silico’ models used for identifying genetic biomarkers involved in lung cancer
Researchers from the Universidad Pablo de Olavide (UPO), liaised with researchers from the Universidad Americana from Paraguay, have carried out an in silico study, i.e. a computer simulation study. Biomedical data of 187 patients have been used to identify new genetic biomarkers, which are involved in tumour development of lung cancer. The leader of the multidisciplinary team is the professor Francisco A. Gómez and it is composed by researchers from the Intelligent Data Analysis Group and from Data Science & Big Data Research Lab (UPO), including Fernando M. Delgado, Miguel García and Federico Divina.
A multidisciplinary research team led by the UPO University analyzes thousands of genomes of the iraqibacter
The UPOBioinfo group, led by the professor Antonio J. Pérez-Pulido in the University Pablo de Olavide in Seville (Spain), together with the group of the Institute of Biomedicine of Seville, and the University Hospital Virgen del Rocío, and professors from the Data Science & Big Data Research Lab, with Federico Divina and Miguel García, started the analysis of around 2,500 genomes of A. baumannii in 2018.
Universidad Pablo de Olavide researchers come up with pantothenate kinase-associated therapeutic solution to palliate neurodegeneration
The scientific research team from the Universidad Pablo de Olavide led by doctor José Antonio Sánchez Alcázar has published a new study in the international magazines Molecular Neorubiology and Neural Regeneration Research. The study suggests therapeutic solutions for pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration (PKAN), which is one of the 12 subtypes of the so-called rare disease NACH that affects children in their first decade of life.
