Christelle Aluome

caluome2I am a bio-informatics engineer with a particular expertise in data mining and database development.

Generally speaking, I am interested in everything linked with data mining: management, exploitation and analysis (especially for big volumes of data).
I used to work in vegetable genomics, in diverse projects related to data mining, which includes database design (associated with the development of a website), analysis of sequences from NGS techniques (Populus nigra, Pisum sativum), the development of procedure for genome reconstruction (de novo assembly) in the case of small computing resources, and the development of protocols for the selection of SNP which can be applied to genotyping chip.

For the Integrative and Theoretical Ecology group, I have set up a web interface of spatialized metadata to favor interdisciplinary search (Geocatalog, which uses the European standard INSPIRE), and I now work mainly on two themes :>

  • The first topic concerns the exploratory analysis of long time series of birds in the Teich bird sanctuary.
  • I also work also wetlands within the framework of the EPIZHONE project. I have worked on a synthesis document which lists the information available on existing data (human uses, ecology, hydrology, cartography,…) on the wetland zones in the Gironde Estuary and the Arcachon Bay.

I also take part in the creation and exploitation of GIS cartographic resources.

Since May 2017, I have been an information system administrator for the research unit ISPA (for Atmosphere Plant Soil Interactions), which is part of INRA. I have joined the ICOS project (Integrated Carbon Observation System), a European network that aims at monitoring the greenhouse gas balance in different ecosystems in and around Europe for 20 years. Within this research infrastructure, I coordinate leaf analyses and monitor the provisioning of resulting data to all partners. These analyses concern forests (pines, oak, beech trees…), meadows and cultivated lands (maize…) to determine their contents in elements such as phosphorus, nitrogen or carbon, and to estimate their change with time. I am also the website manager for ICOS-France.
