The François Jacob Institute of Biology brings together five departments and three services
The last two years in scientific news
Bringing successive mutations to DNA and RNA in test tubes has been possible for several decades now. A MIRCen team has shown that high throughput sequencing can, with unequaled precision, reconstitute the evolutionary path taken by these macromolecules during their in vitro selection process, and furthermore that this path respects Darwinian theory.
Three new species have joined the curious genus of viral giants called Pandoravirus. Both freak shows and innovators in evolution, the giant viruses continue to shake the phylogenetic tree!
The François Jacob Institute of Biology participated in a study showing that caloric restriction greatly increases longevity in a small primate called the mouse lemur.
Researchers at IRCM have shown that certain mechanisms involved in DNA repair are influenced by the intramolecular and intranuclear spatial organization of the macromolecule.
The results of a study performed by a research team at MIRCen suggest that the protein DCLK3 plays a key role in transcription regulation, and its deficit in Huntington's disease a key role in neurodegeneration.
Researchers from MIRCen have brought to light a reduction in the amount of an amyloid beta peptide associated with Alzheimer's disease in the plasma of a primate model during the summer season.
The workshop on Medical Genomics aims at uniting the genomic community over two days and will include talks from GENMED partners who will present their latest results in human disease genomics. In addition, internationally renowned speakers will be invited to give general presentations covering broader and innovative topics in the field of “omic” research.
The CEA held its Symposium for Functional Genomics on 4–5 April 2018 at the Fontenay-aux-Roses site.
Theranexus, a CEA-born biopharmaceutical company, signs a three-year research partnership agreement with the Collège de France.
NeurATRIS lance un appel à projets pour initier des projets collaboratifs entre les membres de NeurATRIS, les laboratoires académiques et les sociétés de biotechnologies. A la clé, un financement à hauteur de 50K€.
CEA Paris-Saclay, Fontenay-aux-Roses CEA’s site, IDMIT, Building 62, Dormont Room
Pharmacodynamics in the clinical context of infectious diseases. IDMIT conference series : presentation of technologies, facilities and expertises from which a large scientific community can benefit.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
