“Marine Genomics Europe” (MGE) is a crossroads between Life Sciences, Ecology, Environment, BioInformatics and High technologies within a multicultural European network.
MGE is a Network of excellence devoted to the development, utilization and spreading of high-throughput approaches for the investigation of the biology of marine organisms. MGE is funded under the framework programme FP6 by the European commission and unites 44 institutions from 16 countries (within and outside Europe). MGE is aimed at promoting, developing, and spreading throughout the European Union a better understanding of the functioning of marine ecosystems and the biology of marine organisms. Moreover, MGE will establish databases of marine resources through large scale Biodiversity studies.
About 450 scientists are involved in MGE
MGE is coordinated by Dr Catherine Boyen, Station Biologique de Roscoff, CNRS, France.
