Inria International Partners

Declared Inria International Partners


  • Program: Inria International Partner

  • Title: Combinatorics and Algorithms for the Genomic sequences

  • Inria principal investigators: David Sherman

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • Vavilov Institute of General Genetics (Russia (Russian Federation)) - Department of Computational Biology - Vsevolod Makeev

  • Duration: 2010 - present

  • VIGG and AMIB teams has a more than 12 years long collaboration on sequence analysis. The two groups aim at identifying DNA motifs for a functional annotation, with a special focus on conserved regulatory regions. In the current 3-years project CARNAGE, our collaboration, that includes Inrai-team Magnome , is oriented towards new trends that arise from Next Generation Sequencing data. Combinatorial issues in genome assembly are addressed. RNA structure and interactions are also studied.

    The toolkit is pattern matching algorithms and analytic combinatorics, leading to common software.

Informal International Partners

Magnome collaborates with Rodrigo Assar of the Universidad Andrès Bello, and Nicolás Loira and Alessandro Maass of the Center for Genomic Regulation, in Santiago de Chile (Chile).

Participation in other International Programs

Magnome and the VIGG of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) in Moscow are partners in a project funded by the CNRS and the RAS entitle “Séquençage profond de organismes biotechnologiques : des régulons à l'adaptation ”.
