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 […]
Evolution of the Pathogenicity Locus of C. difficile
The major virulence factors of Clostridium difficile are toxins A and B. These toxins are encoded by tcdA and tcdB genes, which form a pathogenicity locus (PaLoc) together with three additional genes that have been […]
Genetic variability of non-segmented negative RNA virus populations and host adaptation (Viva&Host)
Non-segmented negative strand RNA viruses are characterized by an intrinsic genome instability, the result of an error-prone RNA dependant RNA polymerase. To date, most viral populations have been characterized by their consensus genome sequences. […]
Sequana: a set of flexible NGS pipelines
Sequana is a Python framework designed to provide pipelines to analyse Next Generation Sequencing data sets. Sequana provides tools to access the sequence quality but also post-processing analysis such as depth of coverage or […]
