Regional initiatives


Biogenouest, the 8th national genopole, funded in 2002 acts as a strategic project for higher education and research in life sciences, bioinformatics, and for the economic development in the fields of marine sciences , agriculture and food processing and human health . It is a network of academic labs, federated through a GIS structure (Scientific Interest Groupment, about 55 laboratories from Inra, Inserm, Ifremer, Inria, CNRS, Universities of Rennes, Nantes, Brest and Angers) in western France (Region Bretagne and Pays de la Loire). A network of technological platforms is proposed to all members.

Biogenouest is headed by M. Renard (Inra Le Rheu). J. Nicolas and J. Bourdon in charge of the bioinformatics research field and O. Collin in charge of the bioinformatics platform, participate in the monthly meetings of the Biogenouest committee. O. Collin is now in charge of the newly set-up bioinformatics axis that will coordinate the actions of 3 bioinformatics platforms of Biogenouest (Nantes, Rennes, Roscoff).
