The scientific unit ‘Transversal activities in Applied Genomics’ (TAG) is a transversal scientific service developing and implementing genomic and bioinformatics applications to perform both routine analyses, and innovative scientific and technological research. By setting up internal and external partnerships, through the coordination of and/or participation in multidisciplinary research projects in partnership with in-house and external experts, TAG generates new knowledge and tools tailored to face and anticipate the current and future challenges affecting human and animal health.
To this end, TAG applies the most advanced technologies such as massive parallel sequencing (Next-Generation Sequencing, both short and long read sequencing) and appropriate bioinformatics tools in a large range of health applications including the domain of molecular detection for the diagnosis, surveillance, control, and characterization of potentially harmful micro-organisms, biotech plants and human nucleic acids, to promote public health genomics by the effective integration into clinical use and public health policy.
