#Genomics / Postgenomics
Detection, analysis and management of plant species polymorphism.
The major challenges in plant breeding are the analysis of diversity and of the evolution of genes and genomes, the identification of genetic factors controlling traits of agronomic interest (QTL mapping, association studies) and marker-assisted and genomic selection.
Scientific projects with these core subjects require the application of high-throughput sequencing and genotyping.
In order to address this, the unit INRA_US1279 EPGV (in French: Étude du Polymorphisme des Génomes Végétaux) was founded in 2001 at the CEA/François Jacob Institute of Biology) / National Center for Research in Human Genomics(CNRGH), Évry.
The main activities include:
The EPGV participates in numerous national and European scientific programs, such as
– the Investissements d’avenir projects BreedWheat, Amaizing, or Sunrise (which also benefit from the participation of France’s main seed manufactures),
– the ANR projects H2Oak and CROC,
– and the CASDAR projects GenoParfum and FlorHiGe, in partnership with breeders and technical institutes.
