Oct. 25, 2018 SUMMER SCHOOL

3rd edition of the PHENOMIN's school: registration open !

Would you like to learn more about mouse functional genomics to improve your research?

  • Discuss your work in progress and receive advice on experimental design issues
  • Benefit from state-of-the-art expertise and innovative methods
  • Gain crucial skills required to choose, create and analyse the suitable mouse model for your research
  • Learn how to use the available resources from the international projects
  • Gain personnal connections with experts and peers throughout Euro

PHENOMIN's school provides the unique opportunity for you to discuss their research in detail with experts as well as peers.

  • Connection between doctoral education and international research projects
  • Theory and workshops
  • Networking and socialising

Do you expected concrete changes in the management of your experimental projects, in your animal facility, in the analysis and interpretation of the model data you use ?

This event is for you:

Have a look to the schedule program of the PHENOMIN school conisting of workshops on case study in order to support you in your model choice, phenotyping, taking into account the animal welfare. The program also addresses the item of continuing professional education consistent with the new European directive requirement for lab animal protection in experiments.

We will be delighted to welcome you !

Oct. 1, 2018 WEBINAR

CRISPR/Cas9 Genome Editing: Model Creation, Gene Therapy, and Beyond

Guillaume Pavlovic, PHENOMIN-ICS, will present a Webinar in collaboration with our partner Charles River 

The topic: While the power CRISPR/Cas9* has to achieve targeted mutations in nearly any species is clear, what conclusions can we truly draw about its use in genome editing? Attend our webinar, where we’ll answer this question and more with topics including:

  • Is genome editing safe and efficient for human therapy?
  • Will CRISPR help us rid the world of mosquitos, or find the cure for AIDS?
  • How to best expand research applications using deadCas9 protein?

*CRISPR/Cas9 used under license to granted and pending US and international patents from ERS Genomics Limited.

Have a scheduling conflict? Sign up even if you can't make it; we'll share the recording after.



Sept. 25, 2018 INVITATION

Openness & transparency in Animal Research

Invitation to a round table !

CELPHEDIA, French infrastructure, invites to a round table about transparency and openness in animal research. It's an opportunity to share the speakers’ experience in the launching of the transparency agreement in Spain, United Kingdom and France.


Sept. 10, 2018 NEW OFFER !

Characterization of the microbiome using 16S metagenomics

PHENOMIN now offers a full line of 16S metagenomics services including fecal DNA extraction, 16S rRNA gene sequencing, and informatics analysis. 16S sequencing is today the most cost effective approach to reveal bacterial diversity in your sample.

Unlike most suppliers, our offer is distinctive by its advanced meta-analyses of your results including alpha & beta biodiversity, heatmap, clustering (MDS + Bray-Curtis, Jacquard,…), LEfSe analysis.

Aug. 27, 2018 ETHICS

Common rules of organization and operating rules of ethics committees for animal experimentation

A first guide on the common rules for organizing and operating committees was published in French in March 2018. It is now published in English.

Following the transposition into French law of the Directive 2010/63 / EU, ethics committees became competent authorities in charge of the ethical evaluation of projects. As such, the Director General of Research and Innovation of the Ministry of Research asked the French association GIRCOR  to draft reference documents on ethics committees. It commits to harmonising the functioning of the committees to ensure uniform treatment of the projects evaluated and to affirm their position as a forum for dialogue and reflection.

The English version of this guide will facilitate exchanges and harmonisation with the other countries of the European Union.
