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

Internal partnerships bringing together expertise for multidisciplinary projects

GABI's scientists collaborate directly with several units of the Animal Genetics division:

  • Those laboratories most involved are the Cell Genetics laboratory (LGC) in Toulouse working on porcine and avian genomics and genetic diversity, the Animal Genetics Improvement unit (SAGA) in Toulouse working on genetic evaluation, genomic selection, quantitative genetics, milk quality and databases, the joint unit for Animal Molecular Genetics (UGMA) in Limoges studying bovine genomics, the joint unit for Neuropsychoimmunology, Nutrition and Genetics (PsyNuGen) in Bordeaux working on behaviour and stress in the pig, the Poultry Research unit (URA) in Tours for poultry genetics, the joint unit for Animal Genetics (GARen) in Rennes for poultry and quantitative genetics, the joint unit for Functional and Medical Genetics (GFM) in Maisons-Alfort studying milk composition in mice and the Zootechnical Research unit (URZ) in Guadeloupe specialized on analysing diversity. Approximately one-third of GABI's publications come from these collaborations.
  • Several experimental units lead experiments for GABI scientists in cattle (the Pin, Bourges, the Grêleraie and Carmaux), pig (GEPA and the Rheu), poultry (PEAT Nouzilly) and salmonids (PEIMA).
  • The CTIG (Genetic Information Treatment Center) provides an access to computing resources (calculations, storage, national databases). The perimeter of certification for bovine evaluations is shared by GABI and the CTIG. Labogena in Jouy-en-Josas is an essential partner for animal genotyping and transfer of results, in particular for genomic selection.

GABI has created an extensive network of collaborations on the Jouy-en-Josas campus through scientific projects in cooperation with the Developmental and Reproduction Biology unit (BDR), the Genetics and Physiology of Lactation unit (GPL), the Molecular Virology and Immunology unit (VIM) and the Biometry and Artificial Intelligence (BIA) unit. GABI benefits from the Rodent and Fish experimental units on the center of Jouy-en-Josas along with its different platforms, in particular the Bioinformatics platform MIGALE (Center for the analysis and treatment of genomic data). GABI has also made its own platforms, CRB-GADIE and ICE, available to a larger community along with the Amagen model fish farm.

GABI is involved in multidisciplinary projects that require specific complementary competencies in physiology, pathology or product technology and in the social sciences. These projects are led in collaboration with other INRA units belonging to the divisions of Animal Physiology and Farming Systems or PHASE (URH Theix, SENAH Rennes, UMR PL Rennes, URA Tours, PRC Tours, NuAGe Saint Pée, Scribe Rennes), Animal Health or SA (IASP Tours, IHAP Toulouse), Characterisation and Elaboration of Agricultural Products or CEPIA (QuaPa Theix, STLO Rennes). Studies are led with the Sciences for Action and Development division (SAD) on the valorisation of local genetic resources. GABI also has collaborations with the Mathematics and Applied Informatics (MIG) unit to apply methods for the analysis of expression data.
