The Laboratoire de bioinformatique at UQAM focuses on developing algorithmic, statistical, and machine learning methods for biological data interpretation. We develop methods for ancestral genome analyses, evolutionary dynamics of gene tree in tree of life, microRNAs post regulation effects, understanding interplay between Human Papilloma Viruses and cancer. Our lab is affiliated to the centre PharmaQAM and the Computer Science department at the Université du Québec à Montréal.

Next Einstein Fellow

Pr Abdoulaye Baniré Diallo was elected Next Einstein Fellow (NEF) by the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences. This recognition is awarded for a period of two years to twenty young African researchers from different scientific fields. “We will have the chance during this period to rub shoulders with world luminaries, including Nobel laureates, philanthropists and experienced businessmen,” he says enthusiastically.

Precision Dairy Farming, an innovation

Professor Abdoulaye Baniré Diallo obtained just over $ 1 million for a research project to use bioinformatics and artificial intelligence to develop predictive models of milk production, for Canadians Dairy Farmers, to support them for daily decision making about each animal and to iterate rapidly the complete cycle of production\season.
