Functional genomics platform

Bioinformatics plateform


Recently set up at IBPC, the  functional genomics platform puts its know-how at the service of the IBPC units and collaborates with the scientific community.

The functional genomics platform is also equipped with several apparatuses for gel/image processing and analysis, notably a Typhoon FLA9500 (GE), 2 Gel Docs (Biorad) and developer for autoradiograms (Curix), as well as a scintillation counter (Hidex) for processing radioactive samples


The objectives of the platform :

  • Advise and train IBPC researchers for routine bioinformatics analyzes.
  • Develop new analysis and visualization tools adapted to the latest technologies and users.
  • Develop collaborative research projects with the different IBPC teams and research units.
  • To bring together the institute's bioinformaticians and pool the many skills and resources in biological data analysis.

Thematic specificities and expertise

  • NGS (genomic and transcriptomic), proteomic and quantitative proteomic analyses.
  • Sequencing, assembly and annotation of bacterial and eukaryotic genomes.
  • Metagenomics and functional annotation.
  • Evolutionary biology.
  • Visualization and supervised exploration of large collections of biological data.
