AGAP

Genetic improvement and adaptation of Mediterranean and tropical plants

  • Agricultural system
  • Agricultural economics

Research by the AGAP unit is structured around three thematic fields:

  • Analysis and enhancement of the genetic diversity of agro-ecosystems and human management practices;
  • Studies of the genetic and functional basis of traits involved in tolerance to abiotic constraints, resistance to disease and product quality, integrating genotyping and high-throughput phenotyping;
  • Mobilisation of this knowledge in plant improvement programmes conducted in partnership and integrating user participation.
