A company with recognized experience in wheat and maize research, based on over 10 years of collaborations in the frame of national (Genoplante / ANR) and EU funded projects, and with major institutes worldwide. Our capable teams in genetics and genomics have developed significant skills in gene discovery, association and allelic characterization; they closely work with the up-to-date technological platforms available in-house: bioinformatics, sequencing, arrays and pathology, with the continuous objective to feed breeding programs with novel information and tools. Biogemma is particularly innovative in bioinformatics to meet researchers’ specific demands: in a world where high-throughput technologies generate more and more data from different origins, and where integrated analyses are required to create high value-added information for application purposes, specific tools that keep developing have to be designed and deployed. Such tools shall ensure generic services such as data storage, access and management, while guarantying traceability and friendly-to-use interface.

Biogemma’s expertise in bioinformatics, associated with strong links with the agricultural world, will allow an efficient contribution to transPLANT project in a number of workpackages. To make it short Biogemma will contribute to the definition of community standards for the interoperability of data resources; Biogemma will also provide the project with its experience in data storage, management and mining for plant genomic research, including genome variations, interconnection of genotype and phenotype data. Last, the powerful structure capable of huge computing at Biogemma will be of interest to the project to exchange among experts about computing performances necessary to try and remove important obstacles concerning the open access to scientific information and data
