International collaborations

Integrated program ACGT

The project (http://eu-acgt.org/home.html ) aims at delivering the cancer research community an integrated CIT environment enabled by a powerful GRID infrastructure. Our contribution concerns parallelism (Grid development, tumor growth simulation) and data mining (integration of CHAVL in a R environment). It lasted from 2006 to 2010.

Grants from research institutions


  • Alcovna The Alcovna project aims to explore possibilities of extracting information among possibly huge sets of reads without reference genome and avoiding to assemble the data. It is funded by INRIA ARC call and coordinated by P. Peterlongo from oct. 2009 to sept. 2011. http://alcovna.genouest.org

  • BioManyCores The BioManyCores project aims to develop a librairy of bioinformatics software implemented on manycore structures such as GPU. It is funded by INRIA ADT call and supervised by J.S. Varré in Sequoia Team in Lille. http://www.biomanycores.org/

  • ParaQtlMap The ParaQtlMap project is a join initiative from EPI Symbiose and Genetique Animale. to design high performance software for detecting quantitative trait locus. It is funded by INRIA/INRA call and coordinated by D. Lavenier (EPI Symbiose) and P. Leroy (GA INRA) from oct. 2010 to sept. 2012. https://qgp.jouy.inra.fr/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=17&Itemid=28

  • Quantoursin The QuantOursin project aims at developping modeling tools based on probabilistic framework and average analysis, and apply then to the initiation of urchin translation. It is funded by a PEPS program at CNRS and coordinated by A. Siegel from april. 2010 to december. 2012. http://quantoursin.genouest.org/wiki.php/Accueil

Transfer and service grants


  • GRISBI The project intends at developping a production grid dedicated to bioinformatics, by gathering computational ressources of six french ressource centers. It is funded by IBISA and coordinated by C. Blanchet (IPCP Lyon) from 2009 to 2011. http://www.grisbio.fr

  • DrMotifs is a project dedicated to develop tools for pattern discovery and research. Eventually the resource will integrate the tools in a workflow plugged on different databases in order to provide a user friendly tool geared toward motif discovery. It is funded by IBISA and coordinated by O. Collin (Symbiose) from 20010 to 2011. http://drmotifs.genouest.org

  • BioMaj The project aims at developing a workflow engine dedicated to data synchronization and processing.The Software automates the update cycle and the supervision of the locally mirrored databank repository. It is funded by INRIA ADT program from 2009 to 2011 and coordinated by O. Collin. http://biomaj.genouest.org .
