Elodie Laine and Alessandra Carbone organize the mini-symposium « Formal methods in the eyes of biological data » the 5th of June in Ronce-les-Bains. The symposium will highlight recent mathematical developments toward elucidating biological questions or modeling complex biological systems. It will illustrate the cross-talk between formal methods and biological data. The symposium is hosted by the SMAI congress ( and sponsored by the GDR BIM (

Martin Weigt co-organizes the conference "Statistical physics methods in biology and computer science", a satellite of StatPhys2016, Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, July 11-16, 2016. It will cover recent progress on the use of methods from statistical mechanics of disordered systems for high dimensional problems related to biology and computer science. Organizers: Simona Cocco, Florent Krzakala, Remi Monasson, Guilhem Semerjian, Martin Weigt, Lenka Zdeborova.

Alessandra Carbone organises with Ion Petre (Turku Centre for Computer Science) the special session "Computation in biological systems" at the international conference "Computability in Europe 2016", Université Paris 7, June 27th 2016 - July 1st 2016

June 21, 2016

On June 21, 2016, LCQB was the Paris Hub for the Global City Sampling Day, an international study of antimicrobial resistance spanning six continents, 32 countries and 54 cities. This event brings together more than 400 people, expected to collect about 12.000 samples of DNA, RNA and microbes from surfaces in well-traveled public meeting spaces. The data will help scientists of the MetaSub Global consortium better understand antimicrobial resistance in urban centers, and also identify new, naturally occurring drugs made by microbes, known as biosynthetic gene clusters. UPMC students in Computer Science and Molecular Biology, together with researchers collected more 80 samples at the entrance of parisian subway stations. The Paris event was organised by Hugues Richard (Analytical Genomics) and Ingrid Lafontaine (Biology of Genomes).
