Plant and Animal Genome Evolution

Call: ANR Blanc

Given the socio-economic impact of plant and animals and the recent explosion of worldwide sequencing capacity, it is essential to develop tools to handle what will become a massive amount of information from sequenced genomes.

The current project aims at developing tools to compare genomes to gain insight into plant and animal genome evolution since their common ancestors in terms of genome organisation (gene and repeated sequences) and the development of applicable tools for translational genomics purposes, i.e. transferring information (candidate genes, molecular markers) from sequenced genomes to yet non-sequenced complex ones, especially for genetic/physical mapping and future genome sequencing. The PAGE program will develop resources and approaches in comparative genomics and deliver publicly applicable tools for the scientific community.

Duration: 01/11/2011 to 31/10/2015

Coordinator: Jérome Salse
