Conceptualization and exploitation of a partitioned pangenome graph as a compact representation dedicated to the characterization of the diversity of the genomic repertoire of a bacterial species

Introduced in microbiology in 2005 by Medini et al. and Tettelin et al., pangenome approaches aim to compile the entire genomic diversity of a species. In these studies, we generally distinguish within the pangenome, the core genome: the set of gene families where gene representatives are present in all organisms; ...

Mining secondary metabolites in cyanobacterial genomes

Cyanobacteria are an ancient lineage of photosynthetic bacteria, which are prolific producers of secondary metabolites. Hundreds of bioactive compounds with diverse chemical structures , such as toxins and molecules of pharmaceutical interest, have been characterized from cyanobacteria ...
