Covid-19

Evolutionary study of covid-19 strains and their close relatives

Humanity is currently facing a major health crisis whose political, economic and social repercussions are likely to be long and serious. However, our species has known in the distant past, a much more serious pandemic, the black plague, which led to the extinction of 2/3 of the European population. Our technological level and our knowledge allow us today to face, if they are used in an optimal way of course. The post-world will have to understand that against natural crises, the solutions will always come from R&D and knowledge. The better we know and the better we will master the next challenges we will face. To do this, we will have to make choices about the use of our financial resources and prioritize the essential over the entertainment. In order to shed light on the situation of Covid-19, we performed a phylogenetic analysis of the strains of covid-19 and their close relatives available in scientific databases.

Launch of a R&D project on autism

Today knowledge about the autistic population has progressed a lot. It is widely accepted that these characteristics are mainly driven by genetic criteria, even if a part of environmental factors in utero can intervene in this atypical cerebral maturation. Because identifying a fringe of this population remains complex at the age of 1 to 2 years, we wish to develop a genetic characterization method based on the complete sequencing of the human genome.

Acquisition of a new calculation server

After 5 years of activity, we are expanding our IT infrastructure with a new computing server dedicated to our R&D needs. With a capacity of 20 cores and 128 GB of RAM, it will allow us to generate high quality reference databases, which are indispensable in the processing of the requests of our customers. The system runs on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, a very versatile OS for scientific calculations and adapted to compliance with the quality rules of companies.

Core genome and accessory genome

Core genome and accessory genome

Since 2010 and the improvement of sequencing methods, genomics is booming. The acquisition of new genetic data has led to a better understanding of biological functions, to discover many genes and new genetic structures but also to highlight inconsistencies between genetics and traditional taxonomic classification. So a new notion has been introduced: the core genome and the accessory genome.

Metagenomics and metagenetics

Metagenomics is the study of all genetic information contained in an environment (hence the Greek prefix meta). The environmental DNA is first extracted and then sequenced for analysis. It differs from metagenetics, which allows the identification of the taxa present in a sample. Here a genetic marker is targeted within the environmental DNA to be sequenced and associated with a reference taxon ....

Genomics Applications in food sector

The genome is the set of DNA molecules in a cell. These molecules belong to different structures: chromosome, plasmid and viruses.

Prediction of miRNA-disease associations with a vector space model

MicroRNAs play critical roles in many physiological processes. Their dysregulations are also closely related to the development and progression of various human diseases, including cancer. Therefore, identifying new microRNAs that are associated with diseases contributes to a better understanding of pathogenicity mechanisms. MicroRNAs also represent a tremendous opportunity in biotechnology for early diagnosis. To date, several in silico methods have been developed to address the issue of microRNA-disease association prediction. However, these methods have various limitations. In this study, we investigate...

The place of genomics in the future medicine

Genomics is an area of biology that involves the study of the entire genome (genetic information) of an organism. His goal is to read all of this information and then decode it to find out how it works. It is applied in microbiology for understand for example the pathogenicity of a strain or in agronomy in the context of the improvement of domesticated species. In humans, there are many applications in medicine, history, the humanities and the justice sector.
