We published a new generation domain annotation approach, demonstrating that "multi-source" domain modelling is more appropriate than "mono-source" domain modelling for capturing remote homology. We re-annotate the Plasmodium falciparum genome.

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).

A novel computational approach of coevolution analysis allowed us to reconstruct the protein-protein interaction network of the Hepatitis C Virus at the residue resolution. For the first time, coevolution analysis of an entire viral genome was realized. Champeimont R, Laine E, Hu S-W, Penin F, Carbone A. Coevolution analysis of Hepatitis C virus genome to identify the structural and functional dependency network of viral proteins. Scientific Reports.

We achieved the complete reconstruction of genome history in a model yeast genus, providing a granular view of genome evolution linking gene content, chromosome rearrangements and protein divergence into a single evolutionary framework.
