URGI Bioinformatics platform

The "Unité de Recherches en Génomique Info" (URGI, UR1164) is an INRA research unit from the plant breeding department.

- Databases, query user interfaces, processing chains for biological data analysis (sequences) : Genes, transposable elements, variants (SNPs, CNVs), expression analysis (RNA-Seq, Chip-Seq)
- Management and integration of data from different sources (interoperability)
- Provision of access to data, tools and computing and storage resources
- Analysis of genomics data and genome dynamics and evolution data (genes, transposable elements)
- Training on the use of platform tools

712-core computing cluster, database server, web server, server room with air-conditioning and fire suppression system (UPS), storage units (NAS, DAS), backup robots, network connectivity : 1 Gb/sec.

Main achievements
GnpIS, an information system for the genetics and genomics of plants and fungi. This system is applied to several species of agronomic interest, in particular, wheat, vine and mushrooms.
