My life in France
My life in Germany
- At the EMBL (Heidelberg, Germany), I was in charge of the GPCRDB, an information system on G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). I played with GPCR sequences using a method called 'Correlated Mutation analysis' (CMA) to detect residues involved in ligand/receptor or receptor-G protein interactions.
- I was also involved in the EMBL Cine Club
My life in California
- In February 2000, I moved to one of the most beautiful city in the world: San Francisco. I work at UCSF, Dept of Cellular and Pharmacology, in Fred E. Cohen's Group.
I designed the NucleaRDB, a database for nuclear hormone receptors.
I also designed and implemented a method ('MuteXt') to extract mutation data from the biomedical literature.
Back in France
- I spent one year in Nice, France. I worked in the Virtual Biology Lab at the University of Nice. My research project was to design methods to extract biological knowledge (e.g. ontology terms) from the literature using text mining and NLP technology.
- I was still taking care of the GPCRDB, NucleaRDB, KChannelDB and PrionDB.
I work now for the CEA (Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique) in Grenoble.
