FluoRib: impact of chemotherapy on cancer cells' behavior

Overview Chemotherapy is widely used to treat cancer. Some chemical agent is the active principal of the drug. The most used chemical is known as 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU). This project investigates the impact of the 5-FU on the behavior of cancer cells. It tries to determine whether it influences the way these cells build their proteins. Scientific abstract: The chemotherapeutic agent 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) is the first line treatment for colorectal cancer (CRC) patients.

Approximate Common Intervals in Multiple Genome Comparison

We consider the problem of inferring approximate common intervals of multiple genomes. Genomes are modelled as sequences of homologous genes families identifiers, and approximate common intervals represent conserved regions possibly showing …
