Pierre is funded by ANR METHEVOL. His project focuses on the in silico analysis of the evolution of methanogenesis and related pathways in Archaea.
PHINDaccess – Comparative Genomics
Comparative genomics is a field of biological research in which a variety of tools are used to compare genome sequences of different species. By carefully comparing characteristics that define various organisms, researchers can pinpoint […]
ANR-FirstFeS: In search of the ancestral machineries for Iron-Sulfur biogenesis
Iron-sulfur (Fe-S) clusters are ancient and ubiquitous protein cofactors essential for life. It is thought that Fe-S clusters spontaneously assembled in the early Earth anaerobic environment rich in iron and sulfur. Rise of oxygen […]
