Towards predicting new mutations in SARS-CoV-2: in the very early stages of an emerging viral outbreak, can we predict new mutations in the proteins of the virus which might lead to its future variants? The "Statistical Genomics and Biological Physics" team proposes a computational approach based on a single viral genome infecting humans and pre-existing viral genomes infecting other species.

Elodie Laine, from the Analytical Genomics team, is co-organizig two events addressing the new challenges in structural biology and bioinformatics, with a particular focus on Artificial Intelligence and Integrative Modeling.

 Structural Bioinformatics Mini-Symposium @JOBIM

It will take place on Thursday 8th July, in the afternoon, on air. You need to be registered to JOBIM 2021 to attend! The program can be found here:
— New directions of AI in structural biology Workshop @CIRM

A small in-person gathering intended to mix « structuralists » and « machine learnists » and to foster new ideas and projects. There is still room, so please consider applying through:

June 5, 2017

Elodie Laine and Alessandra Carbone organize the mini-symposium « Formal methods in the eyes of biological data » the 5th of June in Ronce-les-Bains. The symposium will highlight recent mathematical developments toward elucidating biological questions or modeling complex biological systems. It will illustrate the cross-talk between formal methods and biological data. The symposium is hosted by the SMAI congress ( and sponsored by the GDR BIM (
