Pathobiome congress, Paris

The Pathobiome Conference dedicated to "pathogens in microbiotas in hosts", was organized in Paris, at the French national veterinary School of Maisons Alfort (ENVA).

Participation in this congress was of particular interest given the activities carried out within the EPIGENESIS project. Cutting edge presentations were made, revisiting the concept of “one pathogen – one disease”. It is now clear that the microbial environment is influencing the incidence of pathogen infection on the hosts. This is particularly important for vectorial diseases since the microbiotas may play a role in competence (transmission of pathogens) and disease evolution (co-infections). In addition, important information and contacts were achieved to increase our expertise and capacities on bioinformatics for operating the high throughput sequencing platform acquired whithin the framework of the EPIGENESIS project: thus, bioinformatics pipelines developed by other groups (including CIRAD-Montpellier groups) will be implemented on the CIRAD Duclos server in collaboration with the bioinformatics persons of company supplyer of our equipment.

The scientific outcomes definitely will be used to help the research team to define a strategy to implement bio-informatics tools to be used with the sequencing platform acquired in Guadeloupe throught the epigenesis project.
