Statistical pan-genomics

As the number of sequenced genomes increases, the single string israpidly becoming an ill-suited approximation, discarding accessorygenes, rearrangements and repeated regions. I will discuss genomerepresentations which are well suited to statistical analysis whengenomes cannot be aligned or even assembled.

Laurent Jacob is Researcher at CNRS and part of the high dimensional statistics for genomics group at the LBBE(Laboratoire de Biométrie et Biologie Evolutive),a lab focused on evolutionary genomics and ecology. He isgenerally interested in developing statistical and machine learning methods to solve problems in molecular biology.
