We are a bioinformatics research group affiliated with INRIA Lille - Nord Europe and the Centre de Recherche en Informatique, Signal et Automatique de Lille (CRIStAL, Université Lille 1, CNRS).
The main goal of our research is to define combinatorial models and efficient algorithms for large-scale sequence analysis in molecular biology. This includes genome annotation, comparative genomics, Next Generation Sequencing, metagenomics, noncoding RNAs, genome rearrangements, non ribosomal peptides.
This is a pluridisciplinary initiative of University Lille 1 to promote bioinformatics.
