Professor Pabulo Henrique RampelottoPabulo Henrique Rampelotto is Executive Editor of Current Biotechnology, Senior Editor of American Journal of Genome Research and American Journal of Current Biology, and member of the Editorial Boards of Biology, Life, Healthcare, Microorganisms, and Industrial Biotechnology.
Formerly at the Federal University of Santa Maria and National Institute for Space Research, Pabulo is currently working at the Federal University of Pampa, Southern Brazil. His recent research is focused on molecular biology and genomics of microorganisms in extreme environments (especially Antarctica).
Pabulo has done extensive research on life in extreme environments, metagenomics, biotechnology, astrobiology, and on the origins and nature of life. He is best known for his leadership and eminent work as Guest Editor of several successful special issues in different fields of life science.
In recent years, he has received several invitations to publish papers, special issues and book chapters related to extremophiles, biotechnology, and astrobiology. Short biographies of him were published as chapters in several books including “Planetary Scientists” by LLC, 2010 (ISBN: 978–1242756979), “Space Advocates” by LLC Books, 2010 (ISBN: 978–1155279060), “Astrobiology” by Hephaestus Books, 2011 (ISBN: 978–1243388315), “Extremophiles” by Hephaestus Books, 2011 (ISBN: 978–1243115850), among others.
His research interests encompass different fields of science, from basic to applied research, including: biotechnology, metagenomics, next generation sequencing, molecular biology and biochemistry of microorganisms, microbial ecology, extremophiles, origins of life, astrobiology, and space science (Solar System exploration).
Most of his recent work has been dedicated to the editorial process of several scientific journals in life science and biotechnology, as well as on the organization of special issues on his fields of expertise. In his special issues, some of the most distinguished team leaders in the field have published their work, ideas and findings, including Nobel Laureates and several of the highly cited scientists according to the ISI Institute. He also serves on the Program Committee of several world leading Conferences, such as the 3rd Annual World Congress of Microbes, the 4th International Symposium of Enzyme & Biocatalysis, the 4rd Annual World Congress of Microbes, the 5th International Symposium of Enzyme & Biocatalysis, and the 7th World Congress of Industrial Biotechnology.
