The International Group for Data Analysis (IGDA) led by Magnus Fontes is part of the Center for Bioinformatics, BioStatistics and Integrative Biology and the International Division in IP Paris. This is the Parisian node of the International Network for Data analysis (INDA). Our mission is to push the boundaries of data analysis in Biology within Institut Pasteur and its International Network (IPIN).
- Good models require good data. We are developing state-of-the-art mathematical models, algorithms and software to answer biomedical questions. We have close relationships with wetlabs, and we are directly implicated in the biological experimental designs from the start.
- Good decisions require good knowledge of the data. We are developing new visualization and analysis methods making it possible to integrate biomedical knowledge directly in the modelling of the data.
- Good ideas require good interaction. We are educating mathematical fellows closely in contact with the biology labs. This allows for a more direct communication between the experimentalist and modelers.
