The CBGP (UPM-INIA/CSIC) researcher Dr. Jaime Huerta-Cepas has been listed by Clarivate™ among the world’s most influential researchers in the Biology and Biochemistry research field

Each year, Clarivate™ identifies in this group a select number of researchers who have been most frequently cited by their peers over the last decade. In 2022, fewer than 6.938 or about 0.1%, of the world's researchers have earned this exclusive distinction. The CBGP (UPM-INIA/CSIC) researcher Dr. Jaime Huerta-Cepas have been listed this year in this restricted group (Highly Cited Researchers) among the world’s most influential researchers.

This recognition acknowledges the exceptional research influence of Dr. Huerta-Cepas, demonstrated by the production of multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in the Web of Science™.

Dr. Huerta-Cepas is currently the group leader of the Comparative Genomics and Metagenomics Lab at CBGP (UPM-INIA/CSIC), which develops bioinformatic methods and performs computational studies to unravel the evolution and functional roles of genes.
