Ana M. Aransay received her B.Sc. degree in Biology (specialty: Fundamental Biology) from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in 1992. During the Ph.D. (granted by the Basque Government) at the Department of Clinical Bacteriology, Parasitology, Zoonoses and Geographical Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Crete (Greece), under the supervision of Prof. Yannis Tselentis, she learnt all the key Molecular Biology techniques (isoenzymes, DNA cloning, DNA sequencing, PCR, PCR-RFLP, etc.) and also fundamentals of diagnosis, species molecular typing, phylogeny and epidemiological studies.

After receiving her PhD in 1999, she obtained two consecutive post-doctoral research grants from the Basque Country Government to carry out a project on population genetics of vectors of parasitic diseases. The post-doctoral research work was performed from 1999 to 2004, first at Entomology Department of the Natural history Museum of London (U.K.), under the supervision of Dr. Paul D. Ready and later, at the National Centre of Microbiology of the Instituto de Salud Carlos III in Madrid (Spain), under the supervision of Dr. Ricardo Molina.

Since November 2004, she is the responsible of the Genome Analysis Platform at CIC bioGUNE (Derio, Spain) where the main objectives are to set up state-of-the-art high throughput technologies to offer services for characterization of genomes from different points of view.
