Raphaël Helaers

I have worked in Milinkovitch’s group for about 5 years. I am now in the Laboratory of Human Molecular Genetics in the ‘de Duve Institute’ (Brussels, Belgium). I have actively participated to the development of MANTiS and MetaPIGA v2. I have also written several programs that make life easier in the lab (e.g., a LIMS database for managing/searching samples).

Selected publications

  • MetaPIGA v2.0: maximum likelihood large phylogeny estimation using the metapopulation genetic algorithm and other stochastic heuristics
