UCAGenomiX - IRCAN platform (Nice)

The IRCAN platform (Nice) was created in 2012 by Gaël Cristofari. The platform has benefited from the expertise of several teams in the genomics and bioinformatics, and has developed close relationship with the Hospital (CHU-Nice). Recent achievements were mostly focused on resequencing and epigenomics projects. The IRCAN platform is also shared between wetlab and bioinformatics:
