    Genome-scale DCA
    Direct Coupling Analysis (DCA) has become a powerful tool to find pair-wise dependencies in data. It amounts to inferring coefficients in an Ising or a Potts model and then using the largest such inferred coefficients as predictors for the dependencies of interest. A main success has been to predict (...)

    Evolution in bacterial expanding populations
    In this work, I focus on the evolution of expanding populations, such as bacterial colonies or cancerous tumors. If population expansion is driven by growth and dispersal, then the evolutionary fate of a mutant should also depend on both growth and dispersal. Since these two traits are often constrained by a (...)
General recommendations for the speakers

The audience is often heterogeneous - because of the wide range of scientific topics covered in the lab - so prefer planning a talk for a broad audience. It is recommended to spend several slides on a general introduction, and to make at least the first half of the seminar understandable for non-specialists. The seminar is in English, and speakers are thus invited to prepare their slides in English.

The seminar starts at 11:15 AM. The speaker is asked to arrive in the lab at least 15 minutes in advance to set up the slideshow. The talks last typically 45 minutes, and are followed by a discussion time.
