Welcome to Institute of Genomics
Genoscope Home Page
The CNRGH 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 CNRGH 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.

The genomic data derived from the new sequencing technologies are only of limited interest as such. What is important is the biological knowledge that may be extracted. The principal role of bioinformatics is to assist biologists in that task, in particular by incorporating data from very diverse sources (raw sequencing data, results of in silico analysis tools, data derived from generic or specific databases, omic, i.e. transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic, experimental data).
Projects to which the Laboratory is contributing: "Enzymes in quest of function", "Microme", "Chlorouracil".
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.
