The National Centre for Plant Genomic Resources (CNRGV) is an infrastructure unique in Europe, dedicated to studying the genomes of plants of agronomic interest. It centralises resources, skills and technologies, and maintains permanent partnerships with the international public and private scientific communities. More than 350 laboratories throughout the world have already requested the resources of the CNRGV, and more than six million samples have been distributed since the Centre first opened.
The high-throughput phenotyping platform Pheno3C can study, under semi-controlled conditions, the effects of climate change (water stress and CO2) on the performance of arable crops in the field. Pheno3C is available for use by scientists from the public and private sectors working on phenotyping at both the national and international levels.
The Rennes Imaging and Structural Spectroscopy and Metabolic Platform (PRISM) in which INRAE participates, in partnership with the University of Rennes, has a unique set of medical imaging equipment in Europe. The platform offers 4 types of offers: multi-modality imaging applied to the pig model, multi-scale MRI and NMR in agronomy and food industry, MRI and SRM of small animals and clinical applications, structural and biological NMR spectroscopy.
