Teaching - Supervision - Juries



The members of ERABLE teach both at the Department of Biology of the University of Lyon (in particular within the BISM (BioInformatics, Statistics and Modelling) specialty, and at the department of Bioinformatics of the Insa (National Institute of Applied Sciences). Cristina Vieira is responsible for the Master Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution ( She teaches genetics 192 hours per year at the University and at the ENS-Lyon. Hubert Charles is responsible for the Master of Modelling and Bioinformatics (BIM) at the Insa of Lyon ( He teaches 192 hours per year in statistics and biology. Vincent Lacroix is responsible for the M1 master in bioinformatics ( and of the following courses (L3: Advanced Bioinformatics, M1: Methods for Data Analysis in Genomics, M1: Methods for Data Analysis in Transcriptomics, M1: Bioinformatics Project, M2: Ethics). He taught 96 hours in 2018-2019 and 192 hours in 2019-2020. Arnaud Mary is responsible for three courses of the Bioinformatics Curriculum at the University (L2: Introduction to Bioinformatics and Biostatistics, M1: Object Oriented Programming, M2: new course on Advanced Algorithms for Bioinformatics) and one at Insa (Discrete Mathematics). He taught 198 hours in 2019. Blerina Sinaimeri taught 36 hours in 2019 on graph algorithms for the M1 students of the Master in Bioinformatics, and on Discrete Mathematics at Insa. Fabrice Vavre taught 20h at the Master level.

The ERABLE team regularly welcomes M1 and M2 interns from the bioinformatics Master.

Vincent Lacroix and Audric Cologne were instructors in the NGS data analysis training for the CNRS Formation, a course coordinated by Annabelle Haudry, LBBE (

All French members of the ERABLE team are affiliated to the doctoral school E2M2 (Ecology-Evolution-Microbiology-Modelling,

Italy & The Netherlands

Italian researchers teach between 90 and 140 hours per year, at both the undergraduate and at the Master levels. The teaching involves pure computer science courses (such as Programming foundations, Programming in C or in Java, Computing Models, Distributed Algorithms) and computational biology (such as Algorithms for Bioinformatics).

Dutch researchers teach between 60 and 100 hours per year, again at the undergraduate and Master levels, in applied mathematics (e.g. Operational Research, Advanced Linear Programming), machine learning (Deep Learning) and computational biology (e.g. Biological Network Analysis, Algorithms for Genomics).


The following PhDs were defended in ERABLE in 2019:
