Grégoire Siekaniec

Phd Student in Bioinformatics


My thesis project

I am a PhD student in bioinformatics. I am currently carrying out a thesis entitled "Differential characterization of bacterial strains" with strains of the bacterium Streptococcus thermophilus. The ultimate goal of my thesis is to allow rapid identification of bacterial strains using the MinION sequencer from Oxford Nanopore. My professional project is to work in fields like genomics, transcriptomics or/and metagenomics. In general, I am interested in many scientific subjects and in particular subjects relating to extremophilic organisms and microorganisms.

Popularization of sciences

Participation at the 2019 edition of Sciences en Cour[t]s with Nicolas Guillaudeux

Sciences en Cour[t]s is a very short film festival for popular science. We win the public price for our film called "Me, my dog and the others: in search of lost transcripts". This video explains in a simplified way a part of Nicolas's thesis.

Organisation of the 2020 edition of Sciences en Cour[t]s

In addition to the 2019 participation, I take care, with Nicolas Guillaudeux and Raphael Truffet, of the organization of the 2020 Sciences en cour[t]s festival. I notably made the poster for the 2020 year edition below.
