Roles of Methylation readers and interpreters in Arabidopsis thaliana

Reading mRNA methylation: role of the Arabidopsis ECT proteins in the posttranscriptional control of gene expression in response to heat stress or accross development

The Agropolis fondation output mobility grant will be dedicated to the international mobility of the phD student in charge of the ECT2 project. J. Scutenaire will get the opportunity to spend a month at the school of life science (Univ. of dundee, Scotland) in the laboratory of Pr. Gordon Simpson. During his stay he will run the cross-linking based in vivo purification of ECT2 containing protein complexes formed under normal and heat (...)

Temporal dynamics and functioning of plant communities within the context of newly created transport infrastructures in the Mediterranean area

Recensement des espèces et leurs évolutions dans le cadre de création d’infrastructures nouvelles-SYSTRA

After analysing preliminary floristic data collected on the field in spring 2013 and plant functional traits extracted from databases, Diane realised a second field session in 2014. The biggest part of this field work took place in spring, at the vegetative peak, and kept on going less intensively until the end of the year. This field work allowed the assessment of floristic composition on 25 road slopes (5 per 10-year long age class) and (...)

TreeFood

Reducing of malnutrition through the food supplements from native tree species in Sub-Saharan Africa

The present project will be carried out in Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger (Sub-Saharan Africa). This region is characterized by high population growth, unpredictable food provision and high poverty rates. This situation is already and will further be worsened by climate change effects which affect agricultural production.

Renforcement de la plate-forme scientifique existante "LipPolGreen" (LPG) hébergée par l’UMR IATE à Montpellier via une extension à Bangkok au sein du laboratoire joint KU/CIRAD « Laboratory of Biochemistry and Technology of Natural Rubber » (LBTNR)

The production of fine and flavor cacao is a major economic challenge for Ecuador. It currently relies on the cultivation of the "Nacional" hybrid pool, whose major ancestors have been identified. The origin of the "ancestral" variety was located in the south of the Ecuadorian Amazon where was also discovered the oldest Amazonian civilization (Mayo Chinchipe) and where there are still native cacao (...)
