The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute: The Cancer Genome Project
Supported by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, the Cancer Genome Project (CGP) "is using the human genome sequence and high throughput mutation detection techniques to identify somatically acquired sequence variants/mutations and hence identify genes critical in the development of human cancers. This initiative will ultimately provide the paradigm for the detection of germline mutations in non-neoplastic human genetic diseases through genome-wide mutation detection approaches."

Détermination automatique des théorèmes-en-acte des élèves en algèbre. Le cas des équations e
Dans cet article, nous sommes intéressés à la détermination automatique de théorèmes-en-acte en algèbre. Ces théorèmes-en-acte ont été construits de façon abstraite, puis nous avons cherché à automatiser le mécanisme de leur diagnostic. Pour cela, nous avons utilisé le logiciel Aplusix comme support des productions des élèves qui permet d'enregistrer toutes les actions des élèves. Une base de règles correctes et erronées a été mise en place et un interpréteur de règles

Book Writing and Wall Writing from the course History of Information
This course explores the history of information and associated technologies, uncovering why we think of ours as 'the information age.' We will select moments in the evolution of production, recording, and storage from the earliest writing systems to the world of Short Message Service (SMS) and blogs. In every instance, we'll be concerned with both what and when and how and why, and we will keep returning to the question of technological determinism: how do technological developments affect socie
