Microbial genomics

Annotation and analysis of microbial genomes are the core of our scientific activities, especially through collaborative projects using the MicroScope platform. They often involve comparative and phylogenetic analysis to understand dynamics and evolution of bacterial genomes, syntactic and functional annotation of new bacterial genomes or genomes from reference organisms (i.e., E. coli, B. subtilis, P. putida). To face the challenge of the analysis and visualisation of thousands microbial genomes, new methodological developments are addressed. Moreover, to answer to the needs of metagenomics data analysis, an instance of the MicroScope platform dedicated to the analysis of human (gut) microbiotes is developed (nom?), together with a “standalone” platform allowing the detection pathogens in metagenomic data (PathoTRACK).
