Section: Overall Objectives

Active collaboration with life science actors

The second GenScale objective is to create and maintain permanent partnerships with life science research groups. It also aims to be involved in challenging genomic projects in the following areas:

  • Health;

  • Agronomy and Environment.

GenScale is an interdisciplinary project, which requires strong links with the biology and the genomic scientific community. Hence, it is highly important to keep close relationships with end-users, and being able to have a quick feedback, especially through relevant bioinformatics studies. This is a guarantee for answering right biological questions through right bioinformatics tools.

Collaborations with life science partners go through local, national or international common projects where our tools and methodologies are intensively tested and used. GenScale also welcomes people from INRA, the French research institute in agronomy.
