PhD student in systems biology

, since October, 2018

Automatically design Boolean networks from static and dynamical knowledge on a biological system, to model processes such as cell differentiation.

Supervisors : Christine Froidevaux (LRI), Loïc Paulevé (LaBRI) and Andrei Zinovyev (Institut Curie)

  • Structural bioinformatics: 3mos. internship @ LIRIC, Lille Faculty of Pharmacie - supervised by Nicolas Renault

    « Structure-function relationship of the P2X7 channel-receptor, by open and closed states modeling, virtual screening and molecular metadynamics »

  • NGS analysis: 1,5mo. internship @ institut Pasteur, Lille - supervised by Julie Chevalier

    « RNA-seq expression data analysis, and adaptation of tools to the Galaxy environment to set up a workflow »

  • Databases: 1mo. internship @ MTi, Paris Diderot university - supervised by Karine Audouze

    « Creation of a biological database to link (in human) genes with diseases, metabolic pathways and proteins, gathering publicly available data »
