Field of Activity

Plant genomics.
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 development of customized protocols based on the specificities of plant genomes (genome size, autogamy, allogamy, genetic variability, polyploidy, etc.) and of the evolution of new techniques available at the technological platform of the François Jacob Institute of Biology;
  • the rapid provision of cutting-edge tools and high throughput genotyping and sequencing capacities, responding to the needs of scientific teams and their projects;
  • the establishment of processes and tools for the analysis and management of polymorphism data, in collaboration with bioinformatics specialists;
  •  and the participation within the network of genomics platforms, and more particularly the national infrastructure France Génomique, of which the EPGV is a partner.

    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.
