Thank you very much to George and Luis your precious information. I will start with sci bugs and will try to catch up to be more involved as soon as possible. Fell free to send me anything that you thing could be relevant or any task you think I should be able to tackle. Until then I'll be starting with bugs.
 
Have a good day and thanks again


François
