Metagenomics lab

Since september 2016 Matthieu Miossec, Bioinformatics Scientist and MsC in Bioinformatics, and PhD in Bioinformatics from the Institute of Genetic Medicine at Newcastle University in UK, is leading a new Genomics Lab at the CBIB.

The aim of the laboratory is to develop new computational methods to solve different genomics and bioinformatics problems, as well as new ways to extract valuable information from metagenomics data.

This laboratory collaborates with other CBIB’s research groups since it’s working on creating new computational programs for their own purposes.

The main projects in which this laboratory is involved are Pathoscope (complete computational framework for strain identification in environmental or clinical sequencing samples); and Omniscope (and expansion of the previous projects) which is capable of analyzing a metagenome finding its components by using bacteria references.

The Metagenomics lab is also involved in the development of a statistical package that will allow to deeply analyse the data generated by Pathoscope.
