Mycotoxins and fungal pathogens CONTrol by ACTinomycetes – CONTACT

Potentialities of actinomycetes from soils for the development of novel biocontrol products to manage cereals fungal diseases and mycotoxins risk

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 (...)

Prediction of vegetal cohesive powder Flow

Prediction of vegetal cohesive powder Flow

The vast majority of consumer products are powders or made from them. Many examples of such products may be pharmaceutical or food products, cosmetics, bio-sourced composites and bio-fuels. However, in comparison with liquids and gases, our knowledge of the powder properties, or generally the materials composed of particles, remains limited in more ways than one. Any progress in understanding their behaviour and especially in their use in (...)
