Inria Associate Teams


The title of the project is “Comparative Genomics for the analysis of gene structure evolution: ALternative CODing in Eukaryote genes through alternative splicing, transcription, and translation.”. The project involves partners from EPI Bonsai and from the Université du Québec À Montréal (UQÀM, Canada), from year 2014 to year 2017 (see also: http://thales.math.uqam.ca/~cgalcode/ ).

The aim of this Associated Team is the development of comparative genomics models and methods for the analysis of eukaryotes gene structure evolution. The goal is to answer very important questions arising from recent discoveries on the major role played by alternative transcription, splicing, and translation, in the functional diversification of eukaryote genes.
