The aim of the DREAM project is to study whether diet, through its impact on the digestive microbiota, can modulate the selection of antibiotic resistance during treatment. Multiple observations suggest that, from one individual to another, the intensity of selective
The aim of this PhD thesis is to achieve new methodological developments for the comparative study of pangenomes. This will involve the development of new bioinformatic methods for inter-pangenome comparisons, which will be particularly based on the developments carried out
PPanGGOLiN (Gautreau et al. 2020) is a software suite used to create and manipulate prokaryotic pangenomes from a set of either genomic DNA sequences or provided genome annotations. It is designed to scale up to tens of thousands of genomes.
Abstract The project focuses on a poorly known carbon-sequestering environmental process by a group of diverse bacteria forming intracellular carbonates, occurring at oxic/anoxic boundaries (OAB) in aquatic environments. The molecular and geochemical processes of bacterial biomineralization will be studied by
Abstract The project aims to decipher the biodiversity, ecology and evolution of a group of unicellular eukaryotes ubiquitous in marine anoxic sediments that sense the Earth’s magnetic field thanks to their symbiotic bacteria. This exploration will be done with a combination of
Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) is a major source of variability in prokaryotic genomes. Regions of Genome Plasticity (RGPs) are clusters of genes located in highly variable genomic regions. Most of them arise from HGT and correspond to Genomic Islands (GIs).
Discovery of the complete catabolic pathway for red algal carrageenans in marine bacteria An international consortium coordinated by the Marine Glycobiology team (UMR8227 – CNRS/UPMC) has just published the discovery of the complete system for the utilization of carrageenans, sulfated
In order to extend the range of tools available to MicroScope users, we aim to develop the platform functionalities dedicated prediction, annotation and exploration of genomic regions. These genomic regions include specialized gene clusters (ie, encoding for secretion systems, CRISPR
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.
Over the past two decades, MicroScope has been a leading platform empowering microbiologists with powerful tools and resources to delve deep into the fascinating world of microbial genomics. To celebrate this milestone, we invite you to join us at the Genopole
Localisé au CEA/Genoscope, un centre de recherche scientifique dédié à la génomique environnementale, le Laboratoire d’Analyses Bioinformatiques pour la Génomique et le Métabolisme (LABGeM, UMR8030, labgem.genoscope.cns.fr) s’intéresse à l’analyse et à l’exploration de la diversité des microorganismes et de leur
