The configuration of microbial biodiversity in relation to its environmental conditions is an open problem in ecology. In this talk, using massive data from the TARA_Ocean expeditions we explore principles of maximal entropy that could explain configurations of biodiversity, but also of some important genomics signals.

Joint work with Ignacio Arroyo (Universidad de Chile y Pontificia Universidad Católica), Pablo Marquet (Pontificia Universidad Católica), Ricardo Palma (Universidad de Chile), Dante Travisany (Universidad de Chile-INRIA Chile).
