Paris, France

Pierre and Marie Curie University , also known as University of Paris VI , is a public research university located on the Jussieu Campus in the Latin Quarter of the 5th arrondissement of Paris, France.It was established in 1971 following the division of the University of Paris , and is a principal heir to Faculty of science of the University of Paris . The French cultural revolution of 1968, commonly known as "the French May", resulted in the division of the world's second oldest academic institution, the University of Paris, into thirteen autonomous universities.UPMC is the largest scientific and medical complex in France, active in many fields of research with scope and achievements at the highest level, as demonstrated by the many awards regularly won by UPMC researchers, and the many international partnerships it maintains across all five continents. Several university rankings have regularly put UPMC at the 1st place in France, and it has been ranked as one of the top universities in the world. The ARWU has ranked UPMC as the 1st in France, 6th in Europe and 35th in the world and also 4th in field of mathematics, 25th in field of physics, 14th in field of natural science and 32nd in field of engineering, technology and computer science.It has more than 125 laboratories, most of them in association with the Centre national de la recherche scientifique . Some of its most notable institutes and laboratories include the Institut Henri Poincaré, Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris, Laboratoire d'informatique de Paris 6 , Institut de mathématiques de Jussieu and the Laboratoire Kastler-Brossel .The University's Faculty of Medicine Pierre and Marie Curie is located in the teaching hospitals Pitié-Salpêtrière and Saint-Antoine .UPMC delivers a diploma in physics in English, since September 2013 for Université Paris-Sorbonne Abou Dhabi.

A surface coating method includes the steps of preparing a solution containing a solvent and a material or its precursor, intended to cover a surface to be coated, which is non-volatile, film-forming and soluble or can be in suspension or dispersed in a solvent; and generating an aerosol of the solution. The method further includes generating an aerosol flow from a first end of a tube towards a second end of the tube, wherein the second end pre-determined cross-section (Se) and provided with a spray nozzle having an outlet with a cross-section (S) smaller than the cross-section (Se) of the second end of the tube, such that the ratio R1=F/S is greater than 4 metres per second. The method also includes the steps of directing the outlet of the nozzle towards the surface to be coated and spraying the aerosol onto the surface to be coated.

The present invention relates to a method for the determination of a nucleic acid sequence by physical manipulation. The method is based on the precise determination of the localization of the replicating fork on the template by measuring the physical distance between one end of the molecule and the fork. This allows the determination of the physical location of the site where a pause or a blockage of the replication occurs, and deducing therefrom information on the sequence of the nucleic acid.

Replication-defective lentiviral vectors are described. Using this vector, methods of directing evolution of a target polynucleotide of interest for obtaining variants of the target polynucleotide, methods to generate genetic variability by preparing a cell library, and methods to isolate and/or screen variants of a polynucleotide or variants of a protein able to impact the phenotype of a cell or to confer a desired phenotype to target cells and to identify theses polynucleotide variants or protein variants responsible for this phenotype are described.

The present invention relates to a method for the determination of a nucleic acid sequence by physical manipulation. In particular, the said method comprises the steps of denaturing a double-stranded nucleic acid molecule corresponding to the said nucleic acid sequence by applying a physical force to the said molecule; and detecting a blockage of the renaturation of the double-stranded nucleic acid molecule. More specifically, the method comprises the steps of denaturing a double-stranded nucleic acid molecule corresponding to the said nucleic acid sequence by applying a physical force to the said molecule; providing a single-stranded nucleic acid molecule; renaturing the said double stranded nucleic acid molecule in the presence of the said single-stranded nucleic acid molecule; and detecting a blockage of the renaturation of the double-stranded nucleic acid.

Asynchronous information is provided by a sensor having a matrix of pixels disposed opposite the scene. The asynchronous information includes, for each pixel of the matrix, successive events originating from this pixel, that may depend on variations of light in the scene. A model representing the tracked shape of an object is updated after detecting events attributed to this object in the asynchronous information. Following detection, the updating of the model includes an association of a point of the model with the event detected by minimizing a criterion of distance with respect to the pixel of the matrix from which the detected event originates. The updated model is then determined as a function of the pixel of the matrix from which the detected event originates and attributed to the object and of the associated point in the model, independently of the associations performed before the detection of this event.

Over the past few years, genome sequences have become available from an increasing range of yeast species, which has led to notable advances in our understanding of evolutionary mechanisms in eukaryotes. Yeasts offer us a unique opportunity to examine how molecular and reproductive mechanisms combine to affect genome architectures and drive evolutionary changes over a broad range of species. This Review summarizes recent progress in understanding the molecular mechanisms-such as gene duplication, mutation and acquisition of novel genetic material-that underlie yeast evolutionary genomics. I also discuss how results from yeasts can be extended to other eukaryotes. © 2010 Macmillan Publishers Limited. All rights reserved.
