Bilateral Grants with Industry

Korilog: I-Lab KoriScale

Participants : Sébastien Brillet, Erwan Drezen, Dominique Lavenier, Ivaylo Petrov.

In June 2013, GenScale and the Korilog Company created an Inria common research structure (I-LAB) called KoriScale. This is the outcome of a solid relationship, which has enabled the transfer of the PLAST software (bank to bank genomic sequence comparison) from GenScale to Korilog. The resulting commercial product (Klast) is now 5 to 10 times faster than the reference software (Blast). The main research axe of the I-LAB focuses on comparing huge genomic and metagenomic datasets.

Rapsodyn project

Participants : Dominique Lavenier, Claire Lemaitre, Pierre Peterlongo.

RAPSODYN is a long term project funded by the IA French program (Investissement d’Avenir) and several field seed companies, such as Biogemma, Limagrain and Euralis. The objective is the optimization of the rapeseed oil content and yield under low nitrogen input. GenScale is involved in the bioinformatics work package, in collaboration with Biogemma’s bioinformatics team, to elaborate advanced tools dedicated to polymorphism.
