Thanks to his on-going collaboration with Dan Knights Lab at the University of Minnesota Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the American Gut Consortium, Emmanuel Montassier has co-authored several high-quality papers that highlight his expertise in bio-informatical analysis of the intestinal microbiota, including data produced by 16s RNA sequencing, shot-gun sequencing and coming soon metabolomics. Emmanuel supervises Master and PhD students in this rapidly evolving area in order to constitute a microbiota bio-informatical analysis team.
