Informations about PhD and Post-PhD at IBITECS.
IBITECS is located on the Saclay CEA Centre, south Paris, which is part of the brand project "Université & Campus Paris-Saclay".
Jacques Bitton has been appointed Director of the Frédéric Joliot Institute of life sciences.
Biologists have brought to light the operation of "chromatin remodellers", key enzymes in cells. They have discovered how the genetic material, condensed in the nucleus of the cell, needs to be remodelled so that the cell machinery can access the genes. This work, initiated by IBITECS/SBIGeM, coordinated by researchers from a CEA/CNRS/Université Paris-Sud laboratory, under an international collaborative project with Pennsylvania State University (USA) and Guangzhou University (China), was published in Nature on 4 February 2016.
This study, in which a team of SPI/LI2D, specialized in proteogenomics, has contributed reveals the crucial role of the Meioc protein as a meiosis regulator. This protein stabilizes the mRNAs essential to the chronological procedure of the very complex phenomenon of sexual reproduction.
A genomic study of the role of the Mediator of transcriptional regulation, carried out by a SBIGeM team, shows that this multiprotein complex coordinate the multiple stages of the setting up of the transcriptional machinery in vivo.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
