He is the Chairman of the startup AMAbiotics, specialised in metabolic bioremediation and synthetic biology. He was the director of the Department Genomes and Genetics at the Institut Pasteur in Paris where he headed the Genetics of Bacterial Genomes Unit. Trained as a mathematician at the Institut Henri Poincaré and a physicist at the École Polytechnique, Danchin has an Erdős number of 3.
