Several DSV teams participate in this infrastructure, including the comparative genomics laboratory from the Genoscope (CEA-IG). Its main objective is to implement informatics resources necessary to extract meaningful information from the data of currently available microorganismal genomes, or those being sequenced. The team develops or integrates informatics tools for the analysis of biological data
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.
