In silico: databases and models






Simulation platform.
Metapop simulates the evolution of meta-populations of monoecious plants across heterogeneous landscapes. Based on the theory of quantitative genetics, Metapop describes individuals with an explicit representation of their genetics and spatial position. Its structure comprises several interacting modules. Metapop, developed at UMR BIOGECO, is a free software under the GNU General Public License version 3.

Web portal for access to genomic and genetic resources on Pinaceae. The portal provides access to 5 separate databases (PINUSMAP, GD², CMap, EST, TREEPOP). A static section of the portal is dedicated to general information on the genus Pinus.

François Ehrenmann


Web portal for access to genomic and genetic resources on fagaceae. The portal provides access to 9 different databases (QUERCUSMAP, GD², CMap, EST, TREEPOP, OAK PROVENANCE, SSR, CANDIDATE GENES, SNP). A static section of the portal is dedicated to general information on the genus Quercus.
