The skin is a complex organ consisting of multiple layers of epithelial tissue but also of fibroblasts, melanocytes, adipocytes, Langerhans cells, sebaceous glands, hair follicles ... The roles of the skin are many : protection of the body against pathogens, regulation of temperature and sensations, production of vitamin D ...
The epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin, provides protection and constitutes a barrier to the aggressions of the environment.

A better understanding of the mechanisms of skin development and molecular interactions between its cells is now possible thanks to large-scale genomic technologies. Genomics allows to deepen all the knowledge acquired on the activities of your products. It also helps to understand the mechanisms of certain disorders of the skin in order to develop adequate care.

The choice of the biological model is a key step in the implementation of the experimental design.
