  • Hi everyone!

    Hi everyone

    I'm studying Cellular and molecular biology at Université de Sherbrooke, in Canada. I have a bachelor's degree in Economics and I speak French, English and German. I am also a craft beer specialist and still have a foot in that sector in my hometown.

    I'm currently doing an internship in Laforest-Lapointe Lab, where I'm learning to use different tools to process metagenomic (currently shotgun) data from samples to analysis. This lab deals in microbial ecology, so I apply these tools in the context of microbiome studies in humans and plants. One of my goals is to create pipelines suited to the needs of my colleagues' research and make them available to the public.

    I signed up here so I can ask questions to the community about the tools and approaches we are using. This is all quite new to me, but I generally take the time to survey the literature to know if my question can be answered. I am usually interested in questioning tools' parameters choices, which often seem arbitrary or simply set to defaults in so many research I've read. Few people question these values (simple example : the minimum length of a shotgun read to be kept for taxonomic profiling vs metagenome assembly vs functional profiling etc.) and I hope to get as much input as possible from the community to justify using this or that approach, this or that parameter.

    Anyway, looking forward to hearing from the community. Cheers!

    How RNA-Seq is Transforming Cancer Studies
    by seqadmin



    Cancer research has been transformed through numerous molecular techniques, with RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) playing a crucial role in understanding the complexity of the disease. Maša Ivin, Ph.D., Scientific Writer at Lexogen, and Yvonne Goepel Ph.D., Product Manager at Lexogen, remarked that “The high-throughput nature of RNA-seq allows for rapid profiling and deep exploration of the transcriptome.” They emphasized its indispensable role in cancer research, aiding in biomarker...

    Methods for Investigating the Transcriptome
    by seqadmin




    Ribonucleic acid (RNA) represents a range of diverse molecules that play a crucial role in many cellular processes. From serving as a protein template to regulating genes, the complex processes involving RNA make it a focal point of study for many scientists. This article will spotlight various methods scientists have developed to investigate different RNA subtypes and the broader transcriptome.
