Comparaison des génomes de trois Arecaceae d’importance, co-évolution du sorgho et du striga et étude de l’association chez le sorgho

Comparison of three Arecacea genomes: oil palm (Elaeis guineensis), date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) and coconut tree (Cocos nucifera); co-evolution of sorghum and striga, association study in sorhum and pearl millet

1 - Comparison of three Arecacea genomes: oil palm (Elaeis guineensis), date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) and coconut tree (Cocos nucifera) The objective of the project is to compare five genomic regions in three Arecacea species: oil palm (Elaeis guineensis), date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) and coconut tree (Cocos nucifera) and with rice. For the project, we used two BAC libraries own by Cirad: one for oil palm and one for coconut tree. The (...)

Concept Note APLIM

Understanding how tropical and Mediterranean plants respond to their environment is a tremendous societal challenge in the implementing of adapted crop management practices, the breeding of new cultivars able to cope with environmental constraints and the maintaining of plant productivity in a context of climatic change. Many groups in the LabEx Agropolis community have to deal with these important issues at different scales i.e.molecular, (...)

Conférence sur le DEVeloppement de cultures ALTernatives innovantes de production de CAoutchouc Naturel

The objective of the project is to organise a second international conference in Montpellier on alternative sources of natural rubber (guayule and Kazakh dandelion), 9 years after the European EU-PEARLS project in 2010, which brought together about a hundred scientists, most of whom are linked to the Association for the Advancement of Industrial Crops (AAIC). More specifically, the aim is to Promote the meeting of scientists working in (...)

Connecting biologies on rice disease resistance, drought tolerance and flowering time

Drought tolerance, disease resistance and flowering time are three major traits in crops that are biologically connected. However the molecular connection nodes linking them together are poorly understood. The Riceconnections projects aims at identifying such nodes in the model system involving rice using three approaches: phenotyping under laboratory and field conditions rice mutants, gene expression analysis under combined biological (...)

Conservation and Sustainable management of Garcinia kola genetic re-sources

The proposed scientific mobility will allow a Cameroonian PhD student involved in the project ‘COSUkola’ being trained in molecular biology and genetics. Besides capacity building aspects, polymorphic molecular markers to characterize the genetic diversity, mating system and gene flow patterns of G. kola will be available. Data acquired on species genetic diversity distribution will provide information on levels and structure of species (...)

Construction de réseaux géniques de régulation exploitant la variabilité naturelle d’Arabidopsis thaliana

EcoNet program aims at identifying regulatory modules in gene networks that have evolved in Arabidopsis thaliana natural ecotypes in order to adapt NO3—‐ nutrition to fluctuating environment. The use of natural variation is now extensively used to decipher gene functions through Genome Wide Association Mapping (GWAM) (for details see : (Weigel, 2012)). Here we decided to probe a subset of the Norborg ecotype collection (a core collection of (...)
