Pedagogical teams

Anne Lopes Anne Lopes, co-founder of Meet-U, UPSUD - UPSaclay referent, Maître de Conférences in Biology. Her research work at the Institute of Integrative Biology of the Cell (I2BC) consists in deciphering the mechanisms underlying the functioning and evolution of biological systems. She chose to apprehend biological systems by focusing on the functioning and the evolution of proteins and of their interactions. Her projects aim at characterizing the 3D structure of proteins and their interactions by molecular modeling approaches integrating evolutionary information.
Elodie Laine Elodie Laine, co-founder of Meet-U, UPMC referent, Maître de Conférences in Biology. Her research activities at the laboratory of Computational and Quantitative Biology (LCQB) concern protein evolution, structural dynamics, interactions and allosteric regulation. She develops methods to predict mutational outcomes, protein-protein interactions and alternative splicing induced changes at large scale.
Jean-Christophe Gelly Jean-Christophe Gelly, Univ. Paris-Diderot referent, Maître de Conférences, co-director of Master 2 Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at Univ. Paris Diderot. He conducts his research activity in "Dynamique des Structures et Interactions des Macromolécules Biologiques (DSIMB)" team. He develops and uses computational methods to understand protein sequence-structure-function-evolution relationships for analysis, prediction and design.
Gaëlle Lelandais Gaëlle Lelandais, in charge of collaborative work managment, Professor in Biology at UPSUD - UPSaclay. She teaches statistics, bioinformatics and functional genomics. Her research activities are linked to functional genomics and the characterization of transcriptional regulation networks, by exploiting experimental « high-thoughput » data (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics).
Juliana Bernardes Juliana Bernardes, students supervision, Maître de Conférences in Engineering at UPMC. Her research activities at the laboratory of Computational and Quantitative Biology (LCQB) are linked to protein domain annotation, comparative genomics and personalized medicine. To address these issues, she develops statistical and machine learning related methods.
Romain Coppée Romain Coppée, students supervision, PhD Student in Genomic and Structural Bioinformatics at the University Paris-Descartes – UMR216. His work focuses on protein-coding genes implied in the resistance of various antimalarial treatments. He uses genomic information during species evolution combined with structural folding to measure the constraint level at each amino acid / codon site, and to highlight key amino acid residues (functional sites).
Tatiana Galochkina Tatiana Galochkina, students supervision, Maître de Conférences at University Paris-Diderot, team DSIMB (Dynamics and Simulations of Biological Molecules). The main field of her research concerns conformational dynamics of macromolecules. Her current project is focused on modelling of the conformational transitions in the membrane transport protein GluT1 with help of molecular dynamics simulations.
Chris Papadopoulos Chris Papadopoulos, students supervision, PhD student in biology at I2BC (University Paris-Saclay). His background is mostly on Drug Design in silico. He is currently interested in identifying the foldability potential “hidden” in the non-coding regions of the genomes. He uses molecular modeling methods for predicting potential 3D templates that can emerge from the “junk DNA” as a potential tool of structural novelty emergence.
Charlotte Périn Charlotte Périn, students supervision, PhD student at DSIMB (Dynamics and Simulations of Biological Molecules). She develops methods that predict proteins structures and for rational protein design. She also studies the links between sequence and structure.
Guillaume Postic Guillaume Postic, students supervision, post-doctoral fellow in Structural Bioinformatics at the Institute of Mineralogy, Materials Physics and Cosmochemistry (IMPMC). His current work focuses on the docking of small cyclic peptides on multimeric proteins. He has developed several algorithms and web resources dedicated to the analysis and prediction of globular and membrane protein structures.
Hugues Richard Hugues Richard, students supervision, Maître de Conférences in Engineering at UPMC. He works at the laboratory of Computational and Quantitative Biology (LCQB) and has participated in several international projects for the (re-)sequencing of genomes. He develops statistical methods for the functional analysis of high-throughput sequencing data (transcriptomics, variant annotation, metagenomics with MetaSub).
