A short introduction to the Collaborative Innovation Center of Genetics and Development

Ministry of Education of China has launched the new “2011 Collaborative Innovation Centers (CIC)” initiative. Among these is Collaborative Innovation Center of Genetics and Development (CICGD, http://cicgd.fudan.edu.cn) established jointly in September 2012 by Fudan University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Nanjing University, Sun Yat-sen University, Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences and Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Yunnan University and Xizang University, as well as partnering with Yale University, Baylor Medical School, and Penn State University.

The CICGD focuses on the understanding of genetic mutations and homologous recombination and their impact on human health and development. The CICGD aims to create a collaboration and innovation platform both diverse and integrated, both dynamic and sustained, to provide an excellent environment for original and creative collaboration by leading scientists, who in turn will build a world-class institute at the frontier of genetic studies.

The CICGD conducts collaborative research on: 1) the molecular mechanism of gene mutation and evolution, 2) the molecular basis of homologous recombination, 3) the genetic basis of major human diseases, 4) the regulation of animal and plant development.

There are five research departments: Genomics, Development and Reproduction, Phenomics, Epigenetics and Frontier Technology.

遗传与发育协同创新中心 简介

遗传与发育协同创新中心是为贯彻落实教育部、财政部《关于实施高等学校创新能力提升计划的意见》(简称“2011计划”)重要精神,由复旦大学、上海交通大学、南京大学、中山大学、中科院上海生命科学院、中科院遗传与发育所、云南大学、西藏大学、耶鲁大学、贝勒医学院和宾州州立大学等国内外高校和研究单位共同建设,资源共投,风险共担,利益共享的非法人学术研究机构,于2012年9月在复旦大学揭牌启动。

中心着力打造“多元、融合、动态、持续”的协同创新模式与机制,以变异与重组这一遗传学的核心问题为切入点,围绕人类健康与农牧业生产相关的前沿方向协同创新,培养新型科研领军人才,产出对生命科学、生物医药和农业环保有重要推动和引领作用的原创成果,使我国遗传学科跻身世界前列。

中心具体科研方向为:1)基因突变与进化的分子机理;2)染色体重组与分离的分子网络研究;3)人类重大疾病的遗传基础;4)动植物发育与性状的遗传调控。

中心设五个研究部:基因组学研究部、发育生殖研究部、表型组学研究部、表观遗传研究部和前沿技术研究部。
