Starting Mon 17 Jun 2019 – Linking gene and function, comparative genomics tools for biologists
Valerie de Crecy-Lagard

More than twenty years after the first bacterial genome has been sequenced, microbiologists are faced with an avalanche of genomic data. However, the quality of the functional annotations of the sequenced proteome is very poor with more than half of the sequenced proteins remaining of unknown function. With nearly 80,000 whole genomes sequences available and increasing amount of post-genomics experimental data available, it is possible to gather different types of information that lead to better functional annotations and can guide the experimental process. The workshop will guide the attendees through practical examples and show them an array of tools and databases that they can apply directly to their research problem. No prior programming experience is required, all the tools available can be used through graphic user interfaces. For background read (

Starting Fri 19 Oct 2018 – Introduction to data analysis 2018-19
C3BI Team

This course is dedicated to first year PhD students of the Institut Pasteur : each of them entering our institute will be automatically registered to the course . Nevertheless applications from 2nd and 3rd year PhD students and postdocs working at the Institute are possible within the limit of the number of places available. First year PhD students with a background in mathematics or physics will be allowed to ask for an exemption. The course will consist in a series of three-hour lectures per day, four days a week over four weeks mixing closely theory and practical work. There will be two sessions, the first one starting October 22nd, 2018 and the second one starting January 14th, 2019.
