The knowledge of Internet paths allows operators and scientists to better understand its functioning and to solve various problems. With his collaborators, Kévin Vermeulen, a researcher in the SARA team of LAAS-CNRS, has designed, implemented and evaluated the first open solution capable of exploring the return paths on a large scale. These results are presented at the ACM SIGCOMM Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) on October 25, 2022.

Microplastics enter plankton aggregates, which are then ingested by fish and move up the food chain. Scientists from three laboratories in Toulouse were the first to use atomic force microscopy to study the problem. In work published in the journal Science of the Total Environment, they confirmed the existence of a mechanism where the presence of microplastics favors the aggregation of microalgae and discovered a second, previously unknown mechanism.

In confined spaces, cells modulate their proliferation through little-known mechanisms. By studying baker's yeast cells, scientists have discovered that an increase in crowding in these cells is linked to a decrease in protein production. Published in Nature Physics, this work presents new avenues for studying solid tumors, which are precisely confined to organs.
