  • 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!
