The main objective of this project is to propose a global approach to evaluate the potential of actinomycetes isolates for the control of wheat fungal diseases from in vitro testing till in planta efficacy. Moreover, the identification of active metabolites will provide useful information about the mechanisms of inhibition, but will also offer the opportunity to discover new molecules of interest. This project gathers four complementary research teams from UMR Qualisud, UMR BGPI, and TUB (Germany) to build a pluridisciplinary consortium able to answer the whole problematic. This consortium is composed of microbiologists, molecular biologists, phytopathologists, biochemists and chemists, all expert in their domains. This multidisciplinary collaboration will allow to perform competitive and high quality research for the development of biocontrol solution based on actinomycetes action.
