My new position at INSERM/UMR915

I'm pleased to announce that I've started a new position as a postdoc in Nantes/France at INSERM/U915 , the Thorax Institute for 3 years. The Institute is face up to the Loire and works in close collaboration with the neighboring Hotel-Dieu Hospital.

My team is led by Dr Richard Redon who worked at the Sanger institute on the Copy Number Variations . I'll be part of a project studing the genetics of the Brugada Syndrome using NGS. I'm just starting on this technology so I'm currently learning how to use all those new tools such as R, MAQ, SAMTOOLS , BWA , etc.... biostar.stackexchange.com has been a useful source of information here.

I applied for this position a few days before leaving to Biohackathon 2010 and I started to work in the lab on April 1st. I've been said that my professional network has been of help to get this job, especially Jan Aerts (my new best friend ! ;-) ) (thanks Jan !) who worked with Dr Redon at the Sanger Insitute.

Congratulations on your new position!

I have only been once to Nantes, but it looked like a very enjoyable place to live.

Félicitations! Je collabore indirectement avec Cedric Le Caignec la-bas, qui fera une étude d'association sur des cardiopathies congénitales que nous aidons a recueillir ici a Necker. J'espère que l'Institut te plaira; Nantes c'est une ville super sympathique.

Hi Heather, the world is just too small isn't it ? ;-)

Hi Pierre,

Congratulations. Actually C. Dina worked a long long time ago with E Martin. So you can add an arrow.
