|“20 years of genomics: past and future directions” conference||28-03-2019||28-03-2019||France||Paris||
Twenty years ago, the ENS genomics core facility has been established from a partnership between the Institut Curie, the École Supérieure de Physique et Chimie Industrielles de la ville de Paris (ESPCI) and the École normale supérieure (ENS). Since its inception, we focused our activity on functional genomics analysis of eukaryotes to help laboratories design and conduct state of the art high-throughput projects from the experimental design to data analysis. We have been key players on many fields including yeast sequencing genome project, microarrays development, high throughput sequencing revolution, single cell gene expression and now nanopore technologies.
In order to celebrate this anniversary we will organize in Paris on March the 28th 2019 a half-day meeting entitled: “20 years of genomics past and future directions”. This event will feature a series of talks covering key research fields in genomics. We will look at the past of course, but we will also discuss the future of the field.
The conference will be held at the École normale supérieure in Paris, with an exceptional speaker line up including Ana Conesa, Clive Brown, Catherine Nguyen and Denis Milan. The afternoon will be followed by a gala dinner at Musée d’Orsay with a guided tour of art collections.

Introduction to the concepts and methods of networks in evolutionary studies (sequence similarity networks, genome networks and multipartite graphs)
This free summer school will be held in Roscoff, France, between June 23rd 2019 (date of arrival) and June 29th (date of departure).
This school is designed in priority for biologists and bio-informaticians (completing a PhD degree or currently post-doctoral fellows, as well as researchers), who wish to learn the bases of network analyses.
The main notions (regarding various types of networks, the relevance of their analyses, and some bases in graph theory) will be introduced by short theoretical classes, followed by practical case-studies, introducing the basics in programming required to run such network analyses as well as to use the existing software/tools. Our goal is that, by the end of this summer school, all applicants will be qualified to perform network analyses of their own datasets.
More precisely, we will focus on the following concepts and methods:
- Introgressive evolution and large-scale diversity studies.
- Construction and analysis of sequence similarity networks (construction and sorting of connected components, definition of gene families, search for composite genes, implementation of centrality measures)
- Construction and analysis of genome networks (construction of weighted genome networks, implementation of their diameter, shortest paths, analyses of labeled nodes, etc.)
- Construction and analysis of gene-genome bipartite graphs (detection of connected components, and their articulation points, and twins)
In addition, 9 conferences on networks and evolution will be delivered by leading European and North American scientists during this school.
Confirmed speakers (complete list):
Pr. JP Gogarten (UConn, USA): Lateral Gene Transfer and Prokaryotic evolution
Pr. Robert Beiko (Dalhousie University, Canada) : Introduction to phylogenetic networks
Dr. Eric Bapteste (UPMC, France): Introduction to sequence similarity networks

Les méthodes formelles issues de l'informatique se sont avérées très efficaces pour modéliser les réseaux de régulation biologique et élucider les liens de causalités entre interactions moléculaires d'une part, et phénotypes biologiques d'autre part.
La modélisation formelle des réseaux de régulation biologique participe activement aux avancées en « biologie des systèmes » et en « biologie synthétique » qui sont devenues des thèmes prioritaires de recherche pluridisciplinaire entre biologie, informatique, mathématique et physique-chimie théorique.
Il s'avère que la communauté francophone est à la pointe de la recherche mondiale dans ce domaine et cette école, francophone, présente une palette complète des différents cadres de modélisations (un par demi-journée). Les modalités pédagogiques ouvrent de nombreuses plages durant lesquels les participants interagissent largement avec les intervenants.

|Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics||14-07-2019||19-07-2019||États-Unis||Manchester, NH||
How Genomes Illuminate Our Understanding of Ecological and Evolutionary Processes
Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics
Gordon Research Conference
Genomics tools have never been so powerful and accessible to biologists interested in how the interplay between ecological and evolutionary forces is shaping biodiversity. The 2019 Gordon Research Conference on Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics will explore how the genome-scale processes that underpin organismal phenotypes interact with ecological and evolutionary processes over multiple spatiotemporal scales. The meeting will be preceded by a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS), which will provide opportunities for early career researchers (students and postdocs) to present their projects and will include a special mentorship session.
Topics highlighted at the meeting will include: the ecological and evolutionary significance of novel genes and variation in genome architecture, including genomic conflicts; the role of hybridization and introgression as drivers of diversity; genome-scale perspectives on the role of the microbiome in host adaptations; and the increasing contribution of genomics to explanations of ecosystem function. This meeting will also bring the latest technological developments in genomics and genome manipulation, emphasizing their application to non-model species. Join us to participate in creative discussions in an inclusive social and scientific atmosphere, to empower the future research in the field.
