Hugo Varet is a biostatistician engineer from the Ensai (Ecole Nationale de la Statistique et de l’Analyse de l’Information) and has been recruited by the hub of the C3BI (Center of Bioinformatics, Biostatistics and Integrative Biology) to work at the Transcriptome & Epigenome Platform. He is in charge of the statistical analyses of the RNA-Seq data produced by the platform and develops R pipelines that help in this task. One of them is named SARTools and is available on GitHub: https://github.com/PF2-pasteur-fr/SARTools.

Training: analysis of the transcriptome by RNAseq
The Transcriptome and Epigenome platform of the Biomics pole is organizing a one week (October 10, 2016 – October 14, 2016) training session dedicated to the analysis of the transcriptome by RNAseq. It is […]
Entamoeba histolytica – bacterium interaction and the role of this interaction in intestinal pathogenesis
Amoebiasis, a global medical problem, is a parasitic infection of the intestines caused by the protozoan Entamoeba histolytica. The consortium AMOEBAC, headed by Dr Serge Ankri (Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Israel) aims to […]
Deciphering the virulence factors of Mycobacterium abscessus activated in the presence of environmental amoebae
Mycobacterium abscessus (M. abs) is an emerging pathogen causing lung infections in cystic fibrosis patients. Although the environmental reservoir of M. abs is currently unknown, M. abs possesses a gene pool dedicated to a […]
Transcriptome of different quiescence sub-states of neural stem cells in adult zebrafish
Vertebrate adult neural stem cells (NSCs) are generally quiescent, and the frequency of their cell cycle re-entry (“activation”) conditions their lifespan. Little is known of the molecular pathways controlling the NSC quiescence/activation balance. We […]
The role of lncRNA H19 in Thymopoiesis
“The thymus is a specialized organ that provides a unique environment for T cell development and differentiation. The study the thymus-settling progenitors (TSPs) and how they differentiate is important for the characterization of the […]
Interactions between HP1 proteins and RNA
The three HP1 proteins (Heterochromatin Protein 1 alpha, -beta, -gamma) are epigenetic markers of heterochromatin, the condensed, repressed form of chromatin. They are typically known to associate to the di-/tri-methylated lysine 9 of histone […]
Gene expression profiling in germinal center B cells
Germinal centers (GC) are essential for an effective humoral immune response. The GC provides an environment that stimulates B cells to proliferate in response to antigens and accumulate somatic mutations in immunoglobulin (Ig) genes, […]
HIV signature on RIG-I-like receptors
The pathogenesis of HIV infection, and in particular the development of immunodeficiency, remains incompletely understood. During HIV infection both innate and adaptive immune responses are raised, but they appear to be insufficient or too […]
Functional characterization of mosquito genes involved in dengue virus transmission identified by RNA-seq at the individual midgut level
Dengue is the most rapidly expanding, globally dominant arthropod-borne (arbo) viral disease. It affects close to 400 million people each year in more than 125 countries. Recent reports of autochtonous cases in Southern France […]
Régulation transcriptionnelle par l’Enhancer de Trithorax et Polycomb Corto et la Protéine Ribosomique L12.
Il est aujourd’hui connu que les protéines ribosomiques ont des fonctions extra-ribosomiques, et qu’en particulier, certaines d’entre elles contrôlent la transcription. Nous avons montré que, chez la drosophile, RPL12 interagit avec le facteur épigénétique […]
