Marine began her studies in Genomics and Bioinformatics at the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis. During the master degree, she had the opportunity to work at the IRCAN in Nice. The aim was to analyze domesticated and wild yeasts strains to look into the effect of genetic variation on the speed of evolution. The following year, she did another internship at the INRAE in Sophia-Antipolis. For this project, she was exploring the genomic structure of the nematode M.enterolobii, a recent plant parasite. Then, she had the chance to present this study via an undergraduate travel and monitoring award at the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution in Japan.

Working now as a PhD student at the CAGT laboratory in Toulouse since 2018, she is focusing her efforts at analyzing an extensive dataset of ancient horse genomes and epigenomes. The aim is to identify the prehistorical and historical modifications underlying the origins of the modern horse and the epigenetic modifications within the horse’s bone tissues. This subject is part of the ERC PEGASUS project led by the Prof Dr. Ludovic Orlando.
