Inria Associate Teams Not Involved in an Inria International Labs

  • Title: Comparative Genomics for the analysis of gene structure evolution: ALternative CODing in Eukaryote genes through alternative splicing, transcription, and translation.

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • Université du Québec À Montréal (Canada) - Laboratoire de combinatoire et d'informatique mathématique (LaCIM) - Anne Bergeron

  • From 2014 to 2017

  • The aim of this Associated Team is the development of comparative genomics models and methods for the analysis of eukaryote genes structure evolution. Our 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. Two working meeting took place in 2016. S. Blanquart and J.-S. Varré met A. Bergeron and K. Swenson in Montpellier, from 13th to 15th of April. J.-S. Varré and K. Swenson met A. Bergeron in Montréal, from 8th to 19th of November.

Participation in Other International Programs

  • Participation in the EuroClonality-NGS consortium. This consortium aims at standardizing the study of immune repertoire, clonality and minimal residual disease in leukemia at the european level. We are part of the bioinformatics workgroup led by Nikos Darzentas (CEITEC, Brno, Czech Republic).
