Uses haplotypes derived from existing phased marker array genotypes to identify which individuals should be sequenced. AlphaSeqOpt is a heuristic method for allocating low-coverage sequencing resources. This method is extended with an approach to filter out rare haplotypes. It has two main steps: (i) the initial set selection, where an initial set of individuals is selected by iteratively choosing the individuals that are the most complementary to the ones already in the set according to a score function and (ii) the set refinement, where the initial set of individuals is refined through several rounds of exchanges.

Incorporates characteristics of human innovation and offers an explanation for one of the puzzling observations in the archaeological record of stone tools: its extreme punctuation. GameChangingInnovations encompasses two realistic ways in which innovations can affect the trajectory of cultural evolution: one in which a large-scale innovation, for example a more effective subsistence strategy, can alter the population size and thus the cultural steady state of the population, and one in which a large-scale innovation, such as writing or other mechanisms of preserving cultural information, can affect the rate of cultural loss. With all external factors remaining constant, a population’s cultural gains and losses reach an eventual cultural steady state, such that the rates of cultural innovation and loss balance one another and the population maintains a relatively stable number of tools.

GBIF Integrated Publishing Toolkit

Provides functions to i) encode existing species occurrence datasets and checklists, such as records from natural history collections or observations, in the Darwin Core standard to enhance interoperability of data, and ii) publish and archive data and metadata for broad use in a Darwin Core Archive, a set of files following a standard format. DOIs and citations can be automatically generated for datasets in a standard format; a new DOI can be assigned to a dataset each time it undergoes scientifically significant changes and a version history is kept for each dataset, allowing researchers to easily track changes all previous versions. The guiding design principles of the IPT were to support how data publishers actually use their own databases, and to facilitate the public sharing of datasets with the fewest possible obstacles.

FastEPRR / Fast Estimation of Population Recombination Rates

Genotype Fingerprints

Summarizes personal genotypes, yielding 'genotype fingerprints' that can be readily compared to estimate relatedness. Genotype Fingerprints is based on locality-sensitive hashing. It computes ‘fingerprints’ of genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array genotypes as reported by directly to consumers (DTC) genetics companies. This tool can be useful to recognize genotypes from the same individual, from closely related individuals, or from a known population, and to cluster individuals into sub-populations de novo.


Permits users to visualize genome mutations in gene and protein networks. ActiveDriverDB is a proteo-genomics resource for interpreting human genome variation using post-translational modification (PTM) sites.

Besides, it includes various search options and can generate export tables, upload and publication-quality figures.


A simple and versatile homemade tool, for the real-time systematic automated surveillance of IDs at Marseille university hospitals, based on the data from our clinical microbiology laboratory, including clinical samples, tests and diagnoses. EPIMIC was specifically designed to detect abnormal events as IDs are rarely predicted and modeled. An abnormal event corresponds to an increase above, or a decrease below threshold values calculated based on the mean of historical data plus or minus 2 standard deviations, respectively. EPIMIC proved to be efficient for real-time automated laboratory-based surveillance and alerting at our university hospital clinical microbiology laboratory-scale.
