Annotation of genes and genomes-ongoing training

In a few words

I am an Agronomic engineer, doctor in molecular biology and microbiology and researcher at CNRS since 2000.

I'm specialized, since the 90s, in in silico analysis of genomic sequences. My goals are to understand the genetic basis of phenotypic variability of organisms, in the contexts of medical, agricultural and industrial applications (functional genomics), to study the organization and the evolution of genes and genomes, to predict their function and their history (comparative genomic) and to manage and share these results and approaches in development dedicated computer tools.

After leading a team dedicated to microbial genomics and another one dedicated to applied bioinformatics (between 2000 and 2011), I led an academic expertise platform in genomes and microbiomes annotation (between 2011 and 2017).

Since January 2017, I joined the group of Catherine André to develop a project to understand the impact of the microbiota on development of mammal’s common diseases, especially cancers like melanoma or sarcoma.

My research areas included: 

  • Metagenomic studies (e.g. microbiota/ microbiome)
  • Genome assembly, gene-finding & annotation
  • Functional modeling & prediction
