Project context and summary :

The aim of this project is to implement, at the level of the research units, a bioinformatics workflow dedicated to the analysis of the microbiome, and of the virome in particular, based on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data (Illumina technology). This workflow will be applied in different contexts, from the identification of nucleotide sequences belonging to a novel or emerging pathogen (mainly viruses) presente in a clinical sample (such as serum or cerebrospinal fluid), to the determination of the whole sequence genome of isolated and uncharacterized viruses (such as bacteriophages of Leptospira).
