I was always interested by Search, as long as I can remember and I started to study Biology at the University Victor Segalen Bordeaux II in 2004. During my second year of study, I have discovered the field of Computational biology and I am really interested by this multidisciplinary domain. Since my Master degree, I work in public research and really like it and the different challenges that we have to rise if we want to understand what we are studying.
I am mostly interested in genetics and diseases and I am convinced that, one day, we will be able to understand how the genome works. Genetics is studied since a while now but we still discover that we sometimes have difficulty to link mutations to disease. I like seeing how we are able, now, to link a specific mutation to its gene pathway, even if the SNP is not in a coding sequence and try to show how this mutation could impact the human body or its response to its environment. Off course, all this stuff can’t be done without informatic tools and all the data we have to analyze in the aim to understand what we are observing. The fact that we, biologists, computer specialists, statisticians, are able to work together is highly motivating and I really like to learn and evolve in this way.
