Antony Le Béchec studied biology, mathematics, computer science and bioinformatics at the University of Rennes in France, to finally obtain a master in information systems management engineering in 2002 and a master in Bioinformatics in 2003. He obtained is Ph.D. in 2007 at the INSERM health institute, in integrative biology and biomedicine (hepatocellular carcinoma). He worked at the CNRS research institute (2007-2008) to develop a multi-pattern-matching approach to automatically classify proteins into families (amyloïds and MIPs, neurodegeneratives diseases). Then, he worked at the University of Luxembourg (2008-2012) to develop a meta-regulation networks analysis approach (MIR@NT@N) and studying dynamics of gene regulatory networks (XPred), mainly in cell plasticity and cancer. He joined the Vital-IT group in May 2012 in collaboration with the Statistical Genetics Group at the Department of Medical Genetics and the CHUV to work on the Exome project.
