The Station biologique de Roscoff is a French marine biology and oceanography research and teaching center. Founded by Henri de Lacaze-Duthiers (1821–1901) in 1872, it is at the present time affiliated to the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC), the Institut National des Sciences de l'Univers et de l'Environnement (INSU) and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique(CNRS). The Station biologique is situated in Roscoff on the northern coast of Brittany (France) about 60 km east of Brest and is surrounded by an exceptional variety of biotopes, most of which are accessible at low tide. These biotopes support a large variety of both plant (700) and animal (3000) marine species. Founded in 1872 by Professor Henri de Lacaze-Duthiers. The personnel of the SBR, which includes about 200 permanent staff, consists of scientists, teaching scientists, technicians, postdoctoral fellows, PhD students and administrative staff.
The Station Biologique de Roscoff (SBR) located on the Brittany coast of the English Channel is a research and training centre in marine biology and oceanography, jointly operated by the CNRS and the University Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC). Research areas includes molecular and cellular biology; biochemistry and structural biology, bioinformatics; developmental biology, physiology; reproductive biology, genetics; population genetics and ecosystem functioning; biological and chemical oceanography. Platform - integrative biology platforms with full access to equipment and technical support: Genomic, Proteomic, X-ray crystallography, Bioinformatics, Microscopy. Marine facilities - research vessels (12m, 7m and inflatables) and diving facilities with access to all research equipment and technical support from the vessel crew. Marine model sample - provision of samples of collection of biological material from natural populations and when necessary temporary maintenance in aquariums, or breeding/culture of marine organisms. Roscoff Culture Collection (RCC) strain: provision of one algal / protistan strain from the collection (minimum shipment 10 strains).
Shipment costs are not included but will be charged to the user. See Guidelines and Conditions before applying. Research covers aspects from genes to the marine environment and includes the study of biological processes in marine organisms, the discovery of bioactive molecules of marine origin for potential therapeutic applications, the study of the marine environment and the way it shapes ecosystems, populations and organisms, and the functional and evolutionary processes that structure marine biodiversity. Four research laboratories are located in the station premises, among which a joint lab is co-located in Chile. Integrative biology platforms with full access to equipment and technical support: Genomics, Proteomics, X-ray crystallography, Bioinformatics, Microscopy. Researches on Molecular and cellular biology, Biochemistry and structural biology, Bioinformatics, Developmental biology, Physiology, reproductive biology, Genetics, Population genetics and ecosystem functioning, Biological and chemical oceanography.
