Bioinformatics and genomics of molecular networks

This research axis aims at deciphering the functional organization of the genome, defining the functional role of non coding transcripts, analyzing the molecular interactions at the DNA, RNA or protein level, developing new strategies to integrate heterogeneous information.


Genetics and genomics of multifactorial diseases

This research axis aims at identifying genes and mechanisms underlying the complex phenotypes in multifactorial diseases such as haematological malignancies, sepsis, malaria, and cardiomyopathies.


TAGC Members are actively involved in education and propose various theoretical and practical courses related to molecular biology, genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, statistics and informatics.

Attendees range from BSc, MSc, and PhD students to postdoctoral fellows and researchers.

Next Generation Sequencing Facility - TGML

The Transcriptomic and Genomic Marseille-Luminy (TGML) platform is involved in transcriptomic and genomic data production and analysis since 2001.

Bioinformatics Core Facility - BCF

The Bioinformatic Core Facility offers bioinformatic support on data analysis and software development.

Bioinformatics Resources and Biological Platforms

The TAGC members develop and deploy bioinformatics tools, databases and workflows ranging from next generations sequencing data analysis to network analysis.

The TAGC also own platforms for molecular biology, cell culture imaging and animals breeding.

Our goal

Understanding biological complexity, from genotype to phenotype, with interdisciplinary approaches.


  1. MoonDB v2 is live and cross-referenced by Uniprot

    MoonDB, the Database of Extreme Multifunctional and Moonlighting Proteins built in the TAGC (Nature Communications 6, 7412 (2015)) is now in its second version, with an updated content, and is cross-referenced by Uniprot.


  2. Christophe Chevillard invited as keynote speaker at the XLIII Annual Meeting of the Brazilian Society of Immunology

    The Brazilian Society of Immunology organizes annual congresses since 1973. The XLIII Annual Meeting will be held in Ouro Preto, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil, from October 1st to 4th, 2018.

    The Scientific Program will encompass different aspects of the Immune Response including immunometabolism, tumor immunology, epigenetic immune regulation, immunity and ageing, host microbes interaction, allergy, mucosal immunology, system biology, autophagy, etc.

    The XLIII Congress of Brazilian Society of Immunology will gather top scientists from Brazil and from 10 other countries to discuss the advances in different fields of Immunology.

  7. JOBIM 2018 in Marseille

    In 2018, Marseille will receive JOBIM (Journées Ouvertes pour la Biologie, l’Informatique et les Mathématiques) at the Palais du Pharo, from July 3rd to July 6th, 2018. JOBIM is the yearly conference of the French Society of Bioinformatics (SFBI). By promoting the exchanges between biologists, mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists, JOBIM constitutes the major event of the French bioinformatics community.

  8. The TAGC participates to the CenTuri Centre

    The Turing Centre deciphers the complexity and the dynamics of living systems. CENTURI federates a growing community of biologists, physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers. Numerous teaching and research institutes, among which the TAGC, are involved in the project. Interdisciplinarity is the core principle of the Turing Centre and is central to its activity in research, education and technology.
