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

A comprehensive and structured research facility to meet the challenges of integrative biology

Research at GABI is organized into eight research teams: three teams study a specific species, which helps maintain our strong relationship with the corresponding animal sector (cattle, horse, fish); four teams focus on fields of study (statistical genetics and bioinformatics), functions or cross-cutting themes (cell differentiation, microbiota or lactation and health, biodiversity) and one team houses our core facilities.

BIGE has developed competencies in quantitative genetics, evaluation of reproducing animals, estimation of genetic parameters of traits, molecular genetics, functional genomics and integrative biology for exercise aptitude and musculo-skeletal pathologies.

The main mission of the G2B team is through genetic approaches, to contribute to the sustainability of bovine production in its economic, social and environmental dimensions.

GenAqua's main goals are by associating genetics and physiology to obtain robust and efficient fish in different changing environments. The main species studied are the rainbow trout and the sea bass, the first French farmed fish species, the carp, a major species throughout the world, but also fish models such as the Zebrafish or the Marine Medaka. Since 2016, we are also studying the honey bee.

The objectives of research of the GaLac team is to improve our understanding of the factors that influence the mother-offspring continuum through milk and to decrypt the molecular mechanisms involved. To do this, we study the mammary gland whose development plays a key role in milk production and milk composition, which is a central element of this continuum. The study of milk provides us with information on the modifications of mammary gland function and explanations on the phenotypes of the offspring.

The team is working on the genetics of health and adaptation, developing agronomic or biomedical research in pigs, hens and rabbits.

The main vocation of GIBBS is to perform methodological research in genetics, biostatistics and bioinformatics, by anchoring them within real problems and applied studies performed within the team or in partnership with others.

The MoDiT team, created beginning of 2014, analyzes the biological function of genes acting on tissue development and/or differentiation or genes found to be associated with early developmental abnormalities that could affect the nervous system. These genetic anomalies include ataxias and axonopathies, identified through our involvement in ONAB (National Observatory of Bovine Anomalies).

The team includes the expertise and equipment of the facilities supported by GABI which are open to external users:  the @BRIDGe facility (Animal Biological Resources for Integrated and Digital Genomics), and the Transmission Electron Microscopy service of the MIMA2 multi-site facility.
