Software engineering

Member of the ABI team (ABI-Soft), my activities are focused on the development of data management tools and software dedicated to genetics and their availability to our user communities. My role is to ensure the link between the research teams of the UMR and the developers of ABI-Soft and to define the development strategy of the team. The ABI-Soft team develops three data management tools: Thaliadb, SHiNeMaS and DiverCILand. All these tools are developed using technologies in which the team has a good expertise today: Python / Django & Django REST, PostgreSQL. On the software side, BioMercator and OptiMAS are maintained by the team with Java & R-Shiny technologies.

Lab data steward

As the lab data steward (RDO), I am required to assist the teams in the writing of their Data Management Plan (DMP) and/or in their approaches to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This is the case in the scope of the ANR project MoBiDiv . I also make sure to provide the best possible tools to the colleagues in the scope of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data production process.

CATI PlantBreed

As co-leader of the CATI PlantBreed (with Jacques Lagnel, UR GAFL) I contribute annually to the organization of the inter-CATIomics hackathon in collaboration with the leaders of 4 other CATI : BARIC , BIOS4Biol , BOOM , GREP .
