After a PhD in bioinformatics and microbial ecology, I joined the team of C. Brochier-Armanet (Laboratoire de Biométrie et Biologie Évolutive) for a 2 years postdoc to study the deep evolution history of Archaea and Bacteria. Then I performed a postdoc at Institut Pasteur in S Gribaldo’s team to develop phylogenomic approaches aiming at tackling ancient evolutionary events within the microbial world. Since January 2018, I integrated the HUB as a permanent bioinformatician and I am involved in phylogenomic, metagenomics and comparative genomics projects.
ANR Fir-OM: Firmicutes with an outer membrane: toward new models to study the diderm/monoderm cell envelope transition
The bacterial envelope is one of the oldest and most essential cellular components, being involved in key housekeeping functions, such as physical integrity, cell division, motility, substrate uptake and secretion, and cell-cell communication. It […]
PTR OmNega: A multi-disciplinary investigation of the Negativicutes: atypical Firmicutes with LPS-outer membranes that inhabit the human gut
The Negativicutes are a poorly studied lineage of bacteria that include common inhabitants of the human oral and gut microbiome such as the anaerobe Veillonella, and which can also develop into opportunistic pathogens. Despite […]
