About Us

The mission of the ABiMS platform at the Roscoff Biological Station is to train and support researchers from the marine community and, more broadly, the life sciences, to analyze their data using bioinformatics methods. It is one of the national platforms of the French Institute of Bioinformatics (IFB). ABiMS belong to the Bioinformatics Axe of the Regional project BioGenOuest with the GenOuest and the Bird bioinformatics plateforms. ABiMS also develop collaboration with the SeBiMer service in IFREMER.

Through its numerous interactions with research units, ABiMS is a partner in several national and European research projects involving the development of bioanalysis activities, software engineering and scientific computing infrastructures (65 publications as co-authors over the last five years).  The ABIMS platform has notably developed a strong expertise in the analysis of RNAseq data of non-model species covering a very wide phylogenetic range of organisms (prokaryotes, fungi, protists, macro-algae, plants, molluscs, vertebrates (http://abims.sb-roscoff.fr/projects/publications). It has also contributed in recent years to the development of numerous reference databases for both observational and genomic data (http://abims.sb-roscoff.fr/resources/abims_developments).
