Gaelle_LelandaisGaëlle Lelandais is an assistant professor (lecturer), Université Paris Diderot – Paris 7, life sciences department. She works as a computational biologist in the field of functional genomics in  yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Candida glabrata and Candida albicans. She joined the research group headed by Jean-Michel CAMADRO in 2012. In this group, people address fundamental problems of biology (especially the assimilation pathways of iron and its intracellular metabolism) using multiple experimental approaches like high density screening of collections of mutants, proteomic analyses, measurement of molecular interactions or deep sequencing technologies. She also have a long-term collaboration with the research group headed by Frédéric DEVAUX. In this group, people develop original strategies based on transcriptomic approaches to decipher and compare transcriptional regulatory networks in different yeast species. In the past ten years, she developed several bioinformatics tools to solve specific data analysis problems associated to their research projects (for instance peak calling in ChIPseq or gene network inference).
