In the framework of their cooperation, IFOM (Milan) and CQB (Paris) have set up a scientific rotation program specifically targeted to PhD students.
Students can spend three months in a host group on a scientific topic, with the goal of exploring new approaches and contexts,and acquiring new skills.

Here you can find general rules and how to apply.
Here you can find a list of currently posted projects ( you can also apply spontaneously outside of posted projects).


December 18-19, 2017

 Marco Cosentino Lagomarsino of the GenomicPhysics team organizes the conference Quantitative Methods in Gene Regulation IV ( here you may find the poster image).

Eleonora De Lazzari* published her findings on scaling laws for gene families. A striking quantitative invariant in evolutionary genomics is the scaling with genome size of the number of proteins sharing a specific function. E.D.L. showed that such scaling laws exist systematically at the level of single evolutionary families. This provides a novel view of the links between evolutionary expansion of protein families and gene functions.This work was performed in collaboration with J Grilli (U. Chicago) and S Maslov (U. Illinois).

Marco Cosentino-Lagomarsino and Gilles Fischer collaborated with Gianni Liti’s team to generatate end-to-end genome assemblies for 12 yeast genomes based on long-read sequencing. These population-level high-quality genomes with comprehensive annotation enable the first explicit definition of chromosomal boundaries between core and subtelomeric regions as well as a precise quantification of their relative evolutionary rates of genome dynamics.
