The genomes of Brucella melitensis and several phylogenetically close bacteria are completely sequenced and represent a strategic resource for the URBM, deeply implied in the study of the pathogenicity of Brucella. To achieve the challenge of the mining of this huge data resource, the present trend is to develop specialized databases, dedicated to a given issue and of very high added value. By this project, we also aim to develop a new expertise in an emerging field of bioinformatic. To ensure this technological transfer we initiate a collaboration with two specialized teams (the aMAZE project at ULB and the DB-MAIN project at FUNDP) and we plan that the researcher will work in close interaction with them.
