GnpIS is a multi-species integrative information system dedicated to plant and fungi pests. It bridges genetic and genomic data including genome-wide association studies, allowing researchers access to both genetic information (e.g. genetic maps, quantitative trait loci, markers, single nucleotide polymorphisms, germplasms and genotypes) and genomic data (e.g. genomic sequences, physical maps, genome annotation and expression data) for species of agronomical interest.

Analysis of sequences


The REPET package integrates bioinformatics programs in order to tackle biological issues at the genomic scale. Its two main pipelines are dedicated to de novo detect [1], classify [2], annotate and analyze repeats [3] in genomic sequences, specifically designed for transposable elements (TEs).

Analysis of the data NGS - Analysis of transcripts (RNA-seq)

S-MART is a toolbox which handles mapped RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq data. it is is an intuitive and lightweight tool, performing several tasks that are usually required during the analysis of mapped RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq reads, including data selection and data visualization.

It includes the selection (or the exclusion) of the data that overlaps with a reference set, clustering and comparative analysis (between two conditions, for instance). S-MART also provides many ways to visualize your data: size of the reads, density on the genome, distance with respect to a reference set, and the correlation of two data sets (with cloud plots).

Description of expertise domains

URGI research activity (data integration, repeat annotation, genome structure and dynamics) is closely related the platform activity (Information System and genome analyses). On the one hand, the platform benefits from the research expertise (analysis and tools development) on the other hand it offers a strong support to our research activity with the resources and expertise of its staff (mainly engineers).

The areas of competence and expertise of the platform members are mainly focused on:

  • Interface development (Java J2EE)
  • Development of analysis pipelines (Python)
  • Databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL)
  • NoSQL technologies (ElasticSearch, Solr)
  • Data integration (ETL Talend) of genomics and genetic data (genome annotation, RNA-Seq, polymorphism, Genome wide association studies, phenotype, genetic resources)
  • Genome analysis (structure and dynamics)
    • Polymorphism analysis (SNP, structural variants)
    • RNA-Seq
    • Gene Annotation (structural and functional)
    • Repeat annotation (specifically transposable elements)
  • NGS data analysis
  • Sequence analysis
  • Cartography
  • Evolution and phylogeny
  • Comparative genomics
