One of my projects consists in developing GRAVITY, a java tool based on Cytoscape to integrate genetic variants within protein-protein interaction networks to allow the visual and statistical interpretation of next-generation sequencing data, ultimately helping geneticists and clinicians to identify causal variants and better diagnose their patients. I’m also involved in several other projects in the lab, taking part in the design of pipelines for the processing and the analysis of genomics data, including SNP arrays, whole-exome and whole-genome sequencing data. This means being confronted to the big data problematic, the unit having to manage hundreds of terabytes of genomics data. Finally, I am now analysing these data in order to identify possible causes for autism, to help clinicians with their diagnosis but also to better understand the biological mechanisms at play in this complex disease. This is done through the project aiming at understanding the genetic architecture of autism in the Faroe Islands, and also with the newly starting IMI2 European project AIMS2-Trials.

Since September 2016, I am a research engineer in the Bioinformatics and Biostatistics HUB of the Institut Pasteur and detached in the Proteomics facility. I have a PhD in Signal Processing from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications de Bretagne (Telecom Bretagne) and a Master in Mathematics with a specialty in Statistical Engineering from Rennes 1 University. After my PhD, I was a research and teaching assistant in Mathematics at the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA) of Rennes, then I worked as a consultant for public local authorities in the company Ressources Consultants Finances. I started working in the field of Proteomics in October 2014 in the EDyP laboratory located in Grenoble (http://www.edyp.fr/). I have been working on the improvement of statistical analysis of bottom-up proteomics data. Today, most of the projects I work on consist of detecting changes in protein abundances using discovery-driven mass spectrometry. I am interested in the development of new methodologies to optimize proteomics data analysis pipelines, from the identification of peptides/proteins to their quantification and the interpretation of results. For this purpose, I worked on several R packages which can be downloaded from the CRAN and Bioconductor: cp4p (https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/cp4p/index.html), imp4p (https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/imp4p/index.html), DAPAR (http://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/DAPAR.html) and its GUI ProStar.

Thomas is a biostatistician who holds an engineering degree in Agronomy (Agrocampus Ouest, Rennes, France). He also holds a Ph.D. in biostatistics from Université Pierre et Marie Curie for his work on the spread of nosocomial pathogens on contact networks. During his Ph.D at INSERM, he investigated how high-resolution dynamical contact data could support infection-tracing conducted using more traditional approaches in healthcare settings, e.g. routine swabbing and genetic characterization of strains detected in patients or healthcare workers. He developed a new statistical framework to test the correlation between dynamic close-proximity interaction networks and biological carriage data. While at INSERM, he also developed the R0 package for R that aimed at implementing several computation methods used in estimating reproduction parameters for emerging transmissible diseases. After working as a statistical modeller for a private company in the pharmaceutical industry, he joined the Hub in 2016 as a statistician and is now involved in the projects of the Malaria: parasites and hosts unit headed by Ivo Mueller.

Dr. Natalia Pietrosemoli is an Engineer with a M. Sc. in Modeling and Simulation of Complex Realities from the International Center for Theoretical Physics, ICTP and the International School of Advanced Studies, SISSA (Triest, Italy). During her M. Sc. internships she mostly worked in modeling, optimization, combinatorics and information theory applied to medical imaging. In 2012 she got a Ph. D in Computational Biology from the School of Bioengineering of Rice University (Houston, TX, US), where she specialized in computational structural biology and functional genomics. Her doctoral thesis “Protein functional features extracted with from primary sequences : a focus on disordered regions”, contributed to a better understanding of the functional and evolutionary role of intrinsic disorder in protein plasticity, complexity and adaptation to stress conditions. As part of her Ph. D., Natalia was a visiting scholar in two labs in Madrid: the Structural Computational Biology Group at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO), where she mainly worked in sequence analysis and the functional-structural relationships of proteins, and the Computational Systems Biology Group at the Spanish National Centre for Biotechnology (CNB-CSIC ), where she studied the functional implications of intrinsically disordered proteins at the genomic level for several organisms, collaborating with different experimental and theoretical groups. In 2013, she joined the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics as a postdoctoral fellow in the Bioinformactics Core Facility. Her main project consisted in the molecular classification of a rare type of lymphoma, which involved the integration of transcriptomic, clinical and mutational data for the identification of molecular markers for classification, diagnosis and prognosis. This work was performed in collaboration with the Pathology Institute at the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV). In November of 2015 Natalia joined the Hub Team @ Pasteur C3BI as a Senior Bioinformatician. Natalia is especially interested in the integrative analysis of different omics data, both at large-scale and for small datasets, and loves collaborating in interdisciplinary environments and having feedback from her fellow experimental colleagues. Currently, she’s coordinating several projects performing functional and pathway analysis at the genomic level. By grouping genes, proteins and other biological molecules into the pathways they are involved in, the complexity of the analyses is significantly reduced, while the explanatory power increases with respect to having a list of differentially expressed genes or proteins.

Insight into the Immune System: A bioresource and data-sharing platform to study chronic inflammatory diseases (IsIShare)
Chronic inflammatory systemic diseases (CIDs) are a burden to humans because of life-long debilitating illness, increased mortality and high therapy costs. CIDs’ increasing prevalence in western countries has indeed placed them at the third rank of morbi-mortality causes. Unfortunately, available treatments are poorly targeted and non-curative. That is partly linked to a complex and largely ununderstood pathophysiology. Genetic susceptibility clearly plays a role. Genes linked to the immune system have been identified, but causal genes remain mostly unknown and other factors such as intestinal microbiota have also been implicated. The complexity of CIDs’ pathophysiology suggests that a holistic approach is the most susceptible to help make significant progress. Our project intends to take advantage of recent technical progress and development of informatics tools to set up a transversal approach. High-resolution sequencing technology indeed quickly produces large amounts of accurate data. Besides, new integrative informatics tools allowing storage and integrative analysis of this resulting high amount of data are now available. We intend to set-up a CID’s network allowing the gathering and extensive analysis of data related to immuno-genetic determinants, immune repertoire and microbiota from individuals suffering from one of the three major interlinked CIDs, namely Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS), Crohn’s disease (CD) and Spondyloarthropathy (SpA) as compared to healthy volunteers.
It has been shown that methylation can act as a kind of memory of the immune system. For patients with co-infections, it is of particular importance to know when to begin an anti-retroviral therapy, especially if they are already infected with tuberculosis. The goal of this study is to find hyper or hypo methylated loci related to the reaction of HIV patients (co-infected or not) to different kind of treatments.
Genetic traits involved in the regulation of NK cell and ILC homeostasis and NK cell-mediated anti-tumor functions
This project aims at identifying novel genetic traits that regulate the anti-tumor activities of NK cells and homeostasis of NK cells and other ILC using an unique mouse resource, the Collaborative Cross (CC). CC is a panel of recombinant inbred mice derived from randomized breeding of eight laboratory inbred strains combining high genetic diversity with the advantage of inbred mouse strains. We have identified CC strains that diverge in their anti-tumor immune responses and are characterizing the molecular mechanisms responsible for these differences. Ultimately, these diverse genetic traits may lead to the development of novel therapies for cancer.
