Jean-Pierre Luminet - La forme de l'espace, des trous noirs au multivers

la description de la forme de notre espace physique à diverses échelles de grandeur (en taille ou en énergie) met en jeu une riche variété de modèles géométriques, chacun dépendant de la théorie physique sous-jacente. La description des distorsions spatio-temporelles engendrées par les champs gravitationnels et quantiques est l’un des grands défis de la physique fondamentale du XXIe siècle. Jean-Pierre Luminet parlera des représentations spatiales décrivant la forme de l’espace engendrée par les trous noirs, puis la forme globale de notre ...

1.1. The cell, atom of the living world

Welcome to this introduction to bioinformatics. We will speak of genomes and algorithms. More specifically, we will see how genetic information can be analysed by algorithms. In these five weeks to come, we will see first, what are these genomic texts, we will try to analyse using algorithms and programs. We will then speak of genes and proteins. Proteins being coded by genes. We will study and design algorithms to predict genes on the DNA sequences or genomic texts. We will study, more deeply, an algorithm to compare genomic sequences. And we will use this algorithm to reconstruct phylogenetic trees that is to say the evolution of species over time. During this ...

1.2. At the heart of the cell: the DNA macromolecule

During the last session, we saw how at the heart of the cell there's DNA in the nucleus, sometimes of cells, or directly in the cytoplasm of the bacteria. The DNA is what we call a macromolecule, that is a very long molecule. It's Avery, in 1944, who discovered that the DNA was the support of genetic information. But the scientists who are most well-known for DNA are Francis Crick and James Watson who discovered together, with Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin, in 1953, the structure of DNA, the famous double helix, the two strands. Here are Crick and Watson explaining on a very crude wire model far away ...

1.3. DNA codes for genetic information

Remember at the heart of any cell,there is this very long molecule which is called a macromolecule for this reason, which is the DNA molecule. Now we will see that DNA molecules support what is called the "genetic information". So, DNAcodes for genetic information. How? If you consider this doublestrand molecule, DNA molecule, you remember that on each strandof the molecule, there is a succession of nucleotides. You can follow these nucleotides and write their name or moreexactly the initial of their name. And you will get what we call the sequence". Look: C, T, A and so on. The process by which you obtain this sequence of characters of ...

1.4. What is an algorithm?

We have seen that a genomic textcan be indeed a very long sequence of characters. And to interpret this sequence of characters, we will need to use computers. Using computers means writing program. Writing program means designing first algorithm. So, let's see what an algorithm is. An algorithm is a series of operationsto be executed by a computer, but maybe also executed by ahuman, for solving a problem.  In the first algorithm we will study in this session and next one, the problem will be to count the number of different of the four different nucleotides which appeared in the sequence. It's a sequence of operations. You may say that in ...

1.5. Counting nucleotides

In this session, don't panic. We will design our first algorithm. This algorithm is forcounting nucleotides. The idea here is that as an input,you have a sequence of nucleotides, of bases, of letters, of characters which ends with a star symbol, here. And, you want to count the number of A,C, G and T, and then the frequencies. To write an algorithm in thispseudo code language, you need first to declare on which objector variables you will work. Here, we declare severalinteger variables. What does it mean integer variables? That is a variable, the value of which can be an integer: 1, 2, 3, minus 9 and so on. So, integer ...
