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.

E.Laine and A.Carbone just published a new large-scale method to predict protein-protein interfaces based on sequence and structure information - Joint Evolutionary Trees 2 (JET2). It is the first time that a method highlights, with such a precision, information on distinguished binding sites, possibly overlapping each other.
