Sigenae - an INRAE bioinformatic platform
Sigenae is an INRAE bioinformatic platform specialized in animal genomic data processing. Seven engineers located in Toulouse and Jouy-en-Josas help biologists to extract scientific knowledge from datasets generated by high-throughput sequencers and genotypers.
- The team takes part in different national and international projects such as
1000 bull genomes,
1000 goat genomes,
Our main contributions are data processing, training and software development.
- We have participated in and published open source software packages such as FROGS, jVenn, DRAP, D-Genies, NG6, RNAbrowse.
- We also maintain published databases like Phylofish and SSturgeon.
The team members co-authored numerous scientific publications.
The Sigenae team are involved in many projects.
See below, by topic, some examples of most significant supports.
Example with the 1000 goat genomes project - VarGoats...
Example with the GenoFish project...
Example with metabarcoding analysis project - FROGS...
Examples with recent projects...
Example with Galaxy...
The members of Sigenae are involved in numerous training courses...
