I am working as a research engineer at the PRABI-AMSB facility in Lyon. I have a background in ecology and evolutionary biology (I did my phD on the evolution of reproductive systems in plants). I currently provide expertise and run analyses in bioinformatics and biostatistics for a variety of projects from biologists.
Current projects I am focusing on include :
soil metatranscriptome analyses using high-throughput sequencing (EUMETASOL project)
prokaryotic genome assembly and expression analysis using RNA-seq
Some recent projects :
transcriptome analysis using RNA-seq data (Xenope, Aedes)
microarray data analyses (Nimblegen, Agilent, Affymetrix) for studying expression of phytopathogenic bacteria (Dickeya dadantii and Agrobacterium tumefaciens), or for studying aggressiveness of thyroid cancers,
soil metatranscriptome analyses (Sanger sequencing),
plant (Silene) cDNA annotation projects (Sanger and high-throughput sequencing technologies)
I also contribute to the training sessions for biologists proposed by the PRABI ("Introduction to R" and "RNA-seq analyses using Galaxy").
