Titre : Using computers to understand microbial communities

Prof. Mihai POP, Department of Computer Science – Director, Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS), University of Maryland
Abstract : Microbes are everywhere. They inhabit virtually all ecosystems of our planet as well as the bodies of all living organisms. In humans, microbial communities are critical for health, and disruption of the normal microbiota have been associated with a number of diseases. Understanding our world’s microbial communities is, however, impossible without the help of advanced genomic technologies and sophisticated computational algorithms. In my talk I will describe how computers are used to analyze microbial communities, and will highlight some recent results from my lab.
