Master Biology-Health from Paris-Saclay University
The international Master's 2 GenE2 is aimed at students in Biology, Medicine, Pharmacy, or any other relevant scientific curriculum, who wish to acquire skills in the manipulation, processing and statistical analysis of high-throughput sequencing data.
This course is suitable for students interested in the concepts and technologies of genetics, genomics, epigenetics and epigenomics integrating structural, functional and evolutionary aspects.
The originality of this M2 is to integrate the recently developed technologies by combining them with a solid training in processing and analysis of high-throughput data including two practical workshops: ChIP-seq and Big Data.
The strengths and originality of the Master 2 GenE2:
Dual skills training: Biology and Data Analysis
A "ChIP-seq" workshop: A to Z realization of a chromatin immunoprecipitation experiment followed by Illumina sequencing
A "Big Data" workshop: a practical workshop for the analysis of NGS data, aimed at familiarizing students with the manipulation and exploitation of highthroughput sequencing data from genomics, epigenomics and transcriptomics. ..
Teaching units in the form of lectures in English given by specialists in each field
An internship of 6 months in a research team or in a company
A network of host laboratories in Ile-de-France, in France and abroad
The educational objectives of the Master 2 GenE2 are to train students in the concepts and technologies of genetics, genomics, epigenetics and epigenomics by integrating structural, functional and evolutionary aspects.
Beyond the description of mechanisms, it is also about understanding the processes that may have led to their emergence and evolution.
An originality of this course is to integrate the recently developed technologies by associating them with a solid training in processing and analysis of broadband data notably via two practical workshops: ChIp-seq and BigData.
Training for and by research of our program includes the study of mechanisms of recombination, repair and replication, genomic variability and genomic bases of phenotypic variability, gene expression regulation, structural evolution and functional genomes, especially in an adaptation context, ...
One of the original features of our program is its integrated dimension, which makes it possible to integrate approaches ranging from the DNA molecule to the populations.
Applications for the Master2 GenE2 are made via the Paris-Saclay University Website.
Applications must be sent during these 2 periods:
from 01/02/2023 to 19/04/2023 for students applying to Paris-Saclay International Master's Scholarship (see conditions above)
from 09/05/2023 to 03/07/2023 for others
Our training was conceived in relation with the Paris-Saclay University laboratories whose research focuses on genomics, genetics, epigenetics, evolution, domains in "Omics", molecular ecology...
These internationally recognized teams are developing cutting-edge research and technologies.
The lectures are given by internationally recognized researchers.
The Research-Teaching dialogue at the base of our program ensures the coherence of the training according to recent developments and the needs of academics research and R&D departments of private companies.

Université Paris-Saclay is intent on developing a proactive policy to attract national, EU and non-EU students. As such, for the 2020-2021 academic year, successful candidates will need to pay the same tuition fees as that of national students without having to make any explicit appeal to this end.
Also, the Master registration fees are reduced: 243 € in 2019/2020 academic year (see https://www.universite-paris-saclay.fr/en/admission/tuition-fees).
In addition, each student will have to pay a fee of € 91 as part of the Student and Campus Life Contribution (CVEC) (https://www.campusfrance.org/en/10-things-you-need-to-know-about-the-new-student-and-campus-life-contribution-cvec-0).
These registration fees and taxes do not include social security and insurance costs.
Université Paris-Saclay aims to promote access for international students to its Master’s programmes, delivered by its member institutions, and to make it easier for highly-qualified international students to join the University.
