GABI : Génétique Animale et Biologie IntégrativeUnité Mixte de Recherche INRA - AgroParisTech

GABI follows INRA's commitment for a continuous improvement of its human resources policy

Doc'J Doctoral student conference
Recruitment, integration, career progression, career support: the unit is dedicated to developing stimulating working conditions and fosters values of openness and tolerance in our research environment. This can be translated by different actions occuring at each step of our agents professional careers including the transparency of recruitments, how the agent is welcomed by us and through a dynamic professional life.

The Animal Genetics and Integrative Biology research unit is co-administered by INRA and AgroParisTech. 

Nearly 200 scientists, professors, engineers, technicians and students work here belonging to one of the following higher education and/or reserach institutions: 

INRA, AgroParisTech, CEA and ENVA (National Veterinary School at Maisons Alfort), and several tehcnical and professional organizations in particular the French Breeding Institute  (Idele), The French Institute of the Horse and Equitation (IFCE) and the National Cooperative Union for Artificial Insemination of Animals (Allice).

The research projects at GABI are aimed at

the structure and functioning of animal genomes, understanding the determinism of complex traits (immunity and health, product quality, differentiation and growth, adaptation ) and proposing strategies for the management, evaluation, improvement and valorization of animal genetic resources therefore contributing to the development of both competitive and sustainable innovative production systems.

Our laboratory has personnel experts in

genetics, genomics, statistics, bioinformatics, molecular and cell biology, transgenesis, microgenomics and proteomics. The studies developed are focused on livestock species (cattle, horses, pigs, poultry, fish) and mice using high-throughput biology tools.

Our research team are mainly located at the Jouy-en-Josas research center

located at approximately 20 km southwest of Paris and 7 km from Versailles. The research center employs 10% of INRA's personnel - 1300 agents. Approximately 1000 permanent employees work here and every year we train approximately 500 persons.
