Scientific summary

My research activities, at IGBMC and at ICUBE since 2013, combine tool developments to analyse omics data and their application to the study of biological systems. These approaches are largely based on the exploitation of the evolutionary message provided by comparative genomic and can be can classified into three topics:

  • Annotation and massive exploitation of "omics" data (annotation and comparison of prokaryotic genomes, development of proteogenomics approach, analysis of transcriptomes from Metazoa)
  • Targeted studies of gene and protein networks (protein complexes involved in membrane trafficking, translation, transcription and regulatory networks) through comparative and integrative approaches,
  • Study of genotypes/phenotypes relationships, in particular in rare genetic diseases.
