Curriculum vitae

Stéphane Bruley, 29, graduated in biochemistry and computer science from University Joseph Fourier (Grenoble 1).

Following a life sciences training and a specialization in genetic technologies, I worked on proteic fold recognition and sequence alignment at CERMAV (Centre de Recherches sur les Macromolécules Végétales) in summer 2000. As my interest in computer science and bioinformatic was growing up, I decided to complete my computer knowledge and successfully followed a Master of Sciences in Computer and Knowledge Engineering.

These studies gave me a first opportunity in April 2001 to work with the Helix research group, particularly with Anne Morgat, to develop a biochemical compound knowledge base and the user interface required to visualize its 2D structures and allow substructural searches.

During autumn 2001, I was offered a position as software engineer by the Helix research group, on the Panoramix project, directed by Anne Morgat. Since summer 2002, I have been supervising the software development team of GenoExpertBacteria, the Java browser that results from the Panoramix project.


Current projects and collaborations

-  GenoExpertBacteria is an object-oriented knowledge base and navigator dedicated to the exploration and the expertise of bacterial genomic, proteic and metabolic data. The application can be run in standalone mode or as a module of the GenoStar platform. Software manager of the development of the Java application, I also collaborated to the modeling work of Anne Morgat and Alain Viari. Furthermore, in January 2003 I participated in the official public demonstration of the application organized by the Genopôle Rhône-Alpes consortium at ENS (Ecole Normale Supérieure) in Lyons.

-  During the first development steps of GenoStar, I also worked in association with the developers team, by providing CartoBean, the low-level graphical library dedicated to cartographic representation.


Skills and abilities

-  My knowledge in biology sciences added to an experience of bioanalysis, such as sequence alignment problems, biological domain modeling or data storage, allow me to be strongly reactive to biologists' needs and requests for informatic applied tools.

-  With a particular taste for eXtrem Programming development methods for an interactive work with biologists, I am as well capable to use software development rigorous methods, or design patterns for neatly architectures.
