PIBnet – Pasteur International Bioresources network
The PIBnet program aims at harmonizing microbial strain biobanking and analytical methods deployed within the microbiological expertise laboratories in Paris and throughout the International Network of Institut Pasteur. It is a large collaborative program […]
EMBRIC- European Marine Biological Research Infrastructure Cluster
EMBRIC is designed to propose integrated multidisciplinary value chains of services for the exploration of marine bioresources and their sustainable exploitation as sources of biomolecules and/or as whole organisms for food. The cluster unites […]
Phylogenomics of Shiga’s epidemic dysentery bacillus (Shigella dysenteriae type 1)
The agent of epidemic dysentery, the bacterium Shigella dysenteriae type 1, was isolated in Japan in 1897 by Dr Kyoshi Shiga during a massive epidemic of bloody diarrhea that caused 20,000 deaths over a […]
The operation and development of Biological Resource Centres (BRCs) make necessary the use of software to manage all data relating to acquisition, characterization, production, storage as well as distribution of biological resources. At the […]
The project aims at developing top-down proteomics approaches to deeply characterize bacterial strains on a very short time scale after sample collection in the hospital. This deep characterization includes: (i) the accurate identification of […]
DGA/Rapid project: ANVBIS
The project aims at bringing technologically innovative solutions for the preparation, storage, standardization, and distribution of biological materials and their derivatives at room temperature. Participants: – The company Imagene – EPV (Emergence of viral […]
Microbial Resource Research Infrastructure
MIRRI is a pan-European distributed research infrastructure in its Preparatory Phase which aims to support research and development in the field of biotechnology. Currently, more than 40 public culture collections and research institutes from […]
Latin names: Strains are named according to the most recent valid names in the list of bacterial names with standing in nomenclatures (J.P. Euzeby) and on the DSMZ (Deutsche Sammlung von Mikroorganismen und Zellkulturen) site. […]
ATPase inhibitors, the cases of human heat shock protein 90 and bacterial type IIA topoisomerases
Organic synthesis, still the limiting factor of Medicinal Chemistry? This ongoing project is based on our reviews (1-3) on the inhibitors of the ATPase functions of human heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) or […]
