Project Leader - Ensembl Comparative Genomics - Aken team: Vertebrate Annotation
Matthieu is Project Leader for Ensembl Compara and has been a member of Ensembl since 2011. He has helped to develop pipelines, APIs and storage solutions for large-scale comparative genomics data that support all eukaryotic species in Ensembl. He has significant experience in building gene trees, calling orthologues and paralogues, and in pairwise and multiple whole-genome alignments.
Matthieu completed his Ph.D. in comparative genomics under the supervision of Hugues Roest-Crollius (École Normale Supérieure, Paris). During the course of the project he implemented a method to predict ancestral vertebrate genomes and developed the Genomicus portal, which has since been extended to other clades.
