The technical platform supports the functioning of the genetics, palaeogenetics and imaging laboratories, and the dissemination of information. Concerning contemporary population genetics and full-body scan imagery, the laboratory collaborates with the Toulouse Genopole and the imaging platforms of the Toulouse hospitals. Ancient DNA and the microscanner are autonomous. Concerning ancient DNA, a specialised laboratory on each site allows the comparison of results.
Concerning the microscanner, the Toulouse site has a small field equipment (26 x 35 mm), which can reach resolutions of 18 microns and is equipped with processing software. It is operated by a research engineer from Toulouse III shared with GSBMS, a CNRS study engineer and a technician shared with GSBMS. The microscanner is used to study fossils and anatomical samples, but it is also available to the wider community, primarily the laboratories within INEE and Toulouse III, but also to the public and private sectors (for more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
Concerning the ancient DNA laboratory in Toulouse, it is operated by a researcher, a CNRS technician and a Toulouse III technician shared with the bacteriology department. It is also accessible to the wider community, primarily the laboratories within INEE and Toulouse III, but it can be made available to other sectors (for more information email email@example.com
