Partners and Sponsors

Toulouse Métropole Toulouse Métropole
Created in 2015, Toulouse Métropole is a group of 37 municipalities associated in order to develop and carry out together a project of a territory layout. Its status allows the EPCI (public establishment of intercommunal cooperation) to provide skills to the collectivites in order to standardise the life area and help them to manage their development. The aim is become one of the most important cities in Europe and offer to the inhabitants qualitative local services.
Région Occitanie Région Occitanie
Responsible for education, professional training and career orientation, the Region is behind innovative initiatives to ensure its 226,000 high school students, 34,000 apprentices and 233,000 students are able to achieve success. Our aim is to guarantee equality of opportunity and optimum educational conditions, while increasing access to training and employment and getting young people involved in regional policies. The Region supports young people by enhancing the diversity and quality of post-high school options on offer. Regional aid also comes in the form of support for research institutions, in order to boost economic development / Equality of access to higher education / Spreading innovation through every local district / Promoting and enhancing public research Key Facts: 19,000 students trained for jobs in the aeronautics and space sector per year 15 competitive clusters 106 schools offering health and social care training 3,400 receiving bursaries in the health and social care sector €5.558 billion invested in research and development Over 29,400 researchers
Microbial Genomics Microbial Genomics
Microbial Genomics is the open access journal of choice for pioneering research in genomics in microbial life. We welcome articles showing novel insights, exciting new applications, or innovative approaches to analysis using genomic data, as well as articles developing our understanding of microbial genomics, from large, long-term studies on microbial evolution and epidemiology to studies with immediate clinical or environmental relevance.
Plasmid Plasmid
Plasmid publishes original research on genetic elements in all kingdoms of life with emphasis on maintenance, transmission and evolution of extrachromosomal elements. Objects of interest include plasmids, bacteriophages, mobile genetic elements, organelle DNA, and genomic and pathogenicity islands. Plasmid welcomes topics such as horizontal gene transfer, including antibiotic resistance transfer, and molecular aspects of microbial ecology. It also welcomes applications of plasmid biology to biotechnology and medicine, and of bioinformatics for studies of genomes. The journal is a bi-monthly that publishes full articles, short communications and reviews.
Centre for Integrative Biology Centre for Integrative Biology
The Center for Integrative Biology in Toulouse (CBI Toulouse) regroups five research departments (LMGM, LBME, LBCMCP, CBD, CRCA) that form a strong pole in post-genomic biology, with a total of about 400 researchers. It brings together high-level research groups involved in the understanding of fundamental biological processes including genome dynamics and expression, morphogenesis and development, cognition and behaviour. Importantly, these questions are tackled at different scales, from isolated molecules to organisms in society. The objective of the CBI is to foster synergies between these teams through the integration of multi-scale information in order to design new biological models and meet the immense scientific and technological challenges in post-genomic biology. Thanks to its structuring nature, its critical mass and the complementary skills of its staff, the CBI is a major site of multi-scale integrative biology. The CBI develops its scientific project along four federative axes: "Genome Dynamics", "Cell Dynamics and Development", "Molecular, Cellular and Behavioral Neurosciences" and "Computational and Systems Biology". From 2020 on, all five departments will be regrouped in a unique location thanks to the construction of a new building on the campus of the University of Toulouse-Paul Sabatier.
New England Biolabs France New England Biolabs France
New England Biolabs (NEB) offers the broadest range of recombinant and native enzymes for genomics research and continues to expand its portfolio in the areas of high-throughput sequencing on Illumina, Ion Torrent or Oxford NanoPore Technology systems, real-time (RT)-qPCR PCR, nucleic acid manipulation, proteomics, glycobiology and epigenetics. Founded in 1974 in Ipswich (USA), NEB remains a privately held company that continues to be committed to basic research and supplies the academic and industrial research market, in addition to custom products for drug discovery and molecular diagnostics. In this sense, NEB has opened a GMP production center since the end of 2018. NEB is represented worldwide through its 8 subsidiaries.
