Institute Presentation

INRA is Europe’s top agricultural research institute and the world’s number two centre for the agricultural sciences. Its scientists are working towards solutions for society’s major challenges, focusing on food, nutrition, agriculture and the environment. With a staff of close to 10 000 people, INRA has laboratories all over the territory, organized in some 300 laboratories and platforms.

MGPS was created in 2012 to develop high throughput approaches for the study of intestinal microbiota, mostly in human, in the context of health and wellbeing. Our knowledge base covers quantitative metagenomics, which we have already applied on more than 25 000 samples, through 150 different studies. We also developed tools and approaches for functional metagenomics. In conjunction, our aim is to analyse the microbiota and decipher its interaction with the host, and, within MICROB-PREDICT, to collaborate with the research consortium in WPs 1, 2, 4 and 6.
