France Genomique partner in a massive projet awardee of the PEPR call

Among the 13 new awardees of the second wave of calls for projects for Priority Research Programs and Equipment (PEPR), the ATLASea project (Atlas of marine genomes: from big data to innovation) will be carried out with the partnership of France Génomique. ATLASea is an ambitious program that plans to sequence and analyze the genomes of 5,000 species, the equivalent of almost half of the known marine species in the exclusive economic zone of France. This program will constitute the first atlas of marine genomes of unparalleled depth and richness today. This project is funded for M€41.23 and is led by CEA and CNRS. It will be directed by Patrick Wincker (CEA/Genoscope) and Hugues Roest Crollius (CNRS/ENS).
