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
These flavin monooxygenases which catalyze the Baeyer-Villiger oxidation reactions, represent an efficient procedure for the production of optically active lactones. In fact, these enzymes are capable of converting not only aliphatic ketones to esters, but in particular, the conversion of cyclic ketones into chiral lactones. These chiral synthons have important applications in asymetric chemistry.
Laboratories involved: Laboratory for Cloning and Screening Bioconversion Activities.
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.
