Research Engineer for Synthetic Genetic Array
In August 2012, I joined the Labex as part of the newly established SGA platform for yeast functional genomics. By testing in a systematic way whether synchronous manipulation of genes makes cells more resistant or sensitive to perturbations that target specific pathways, our goal is to discover genes, which functionally interact in metabolic pathways. My roles on the platform are quite diverse. I help the users to design their experiment and I also conduct it. I devote significant amount of time to learn more about the different machines and robots that are in the platform, in order to use them more efficiently. At the same time I take care of yeast collections, which are our biological tool. And finally, I’m responsible for buying all the material that is needed for the platform, ensuring its smooth functioning.
I joined the Labex in September 2012 to help the governing board with the administration of the Labex project. As a project Manager I’m involved in the coordination of the different Labex actions (training, running of the programs…). I’m also organizing the scientific meetings, and managing the budget as well as the reporting.
Lab : Cell and tissue imaging
I joined the labex in January 2013 for the implementation of image processing and analysis, mainly of biological cells and tissues. My tasks are to design and build software for the processing and analysis of images and to advise and train scientists on quantitative image analysis. The analyzes cover various aspects such as segmentation, location, co-location, quantification of fluorescence, pattern recognition, dynamic particle tracking …
Lab : UMR 218, Plate-forme IBiSa Imagerie Cellulaire et Tissulaire – PICT@Pasteur / Taddei Team
My missions are to develop and to realize softwares and routines dedicated to the image analysis in microscopy in interaction with the different teams in the unit.
I Join the Labex 01 August 2013 to work on the project “Unravelling the role of the INO80 chromatin remodeling complex in context of the Ubiquitin Proteasome System in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae”
