EpiG : Functional epigenomics

The Functional Epigenomics platform’s objectives are to provide equipment and to train staff in its use.
It offers services for epigenome analysis and participates in the development of new techniques according to the evolution of the field.
The Functional Epigenomics platform is open to the academic and industrial scientific community.

Scheme of platform’s expertise

Epigenomic Platform offers support in the design, production and interpretation of epigenomic experiments.

The epigenomic platform offers expertise in analysis of epigenetic marks. It evaluates the feasibility of submitted projects and proposes the most suitable method for their completion.

DNA Methylation

  • LUMA (LUminometric Methylation Assay)
  • MeDIP ou hMeDIP (Methylated or hydroxyMethylated Immunoprecipitation Assay)
  • Bisulfite pyrosequencing

Histones Marks 

  • Cut & Run
  • ChIP

Submit a project

You can contact us for any questions or to discuss your project together.

You must fill in the project request form and send it to the following address: parisepigenetics.pf@gmail.com 


The Functional Epigenomic platform is involved in the development of new techniques for epigenome analysis:

  • Cut & Run automatisation
  • Cut & Tag
  • Enzymatic Methyl-seq ( EM-seq)
  • Nanopore

Epigenetic analyses available

Services for DNA methylation and histone marks analyses
