Welcome to Institute of Genomics
Genoscope Home Page
The CNG is the French national research center which enables a response to scientific questions necessitating high throughput sequencing and genotyping thanks to the development and deployment of innovative integrated technologies. The organization of the CNG enables optimization of genetic and genomic research on human diseases by creating indispensable links between cohort constitution (DNA samples), identification of the responsible genes, and study of the transcriptome and epigenome.
List of the main projects of the Institut de Génomique
This project builds on an intensive inventory and sampling of nearly all vascular plant species occurring in the Alps, a biodiversity hotspot harbouring 20% of the European flora.
From a low coverage shotgun sequencing of genomic DNA, we will assemble for each taxon the whole-chloroplast genome and nuclear ribosomal sequences. This high quality data, generated at an unprecedented scale for the plant kingdom, will be used for plant phylogeny, comparative analyses of organelle genome evolution, new plant barcoding references and ultimately analyses of biodiversity patterns and mechanisms of species coexistence in the face of global changes.
Laboratories involved: Laboratory for the Genomic Analysis of Eukaryotes , Sequencing Laboratory
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
