The R Epidemics Consortium : building the next generation of
statistical tools for outbreak response using R
The recent West African Ebola outbreak has been a terrible reminder for the need to gain timely situation awareness, in order to inform and guide public health intervention and maximise the chances of mitigating disease outbreaks. Unfortunately, many tools are still lacking for addressing the challenges, both statistical and technical, posed by the analysis of outbreak data. This (...)

Functional prediction at the (meta)-genomic scale by evolutionary analysis.
Functional prediction is a cornerstone in molecular biology. In this seminar, I will talk about current phylogenomic approaches to functional annotation and gene family characterization. In particular, I will focus on the use of fine-grained orthology detection for functionally annotating novel genomes, phylostratigraphic methods to date the emergence of particular gene functions, and current challenges in the (...)

Are social scents partly produced by the microbiota ?
Animal bodies house trillions of bacteria, which can influence host behavior in ways that have far-reaching implications for host ecology and evolution. Recent studies have revealed surprising roles for bacteria in shaping behavior across many animal taxa. But questions remain and recent perspective papers have emphasized the need of studying the interactions between microbiota and host behavior. Although it has long been posited that (...)
