The mechanics of root growth

Rosom - Influence of root-soil mechanical interaction on the variability of root architecture

In a review article, Forde (2009) suggests that most of the phenotypic variability of plant root architecture is related to the developmental instability of meristems, a consequence of stochasticity at the cellular level. He suggests further that this "random" component (or noise) is good for the plant because it facilitates access to resources in heterogeneous soils. Starting from this point, we make the assumption that, in a granular soil, (...)

Rubber agroforestry practices in Northeast Thailand to maintain family farms income during immature period of the plantations.

Rubber agroforestry practices in Northeast Thailand to maintain family farms income during immature period of the plantations.

The objective of the study (done during the mobility period) is the understanding of the strategies of farmers for agroforestry practices during immature period of rubber trees and of the consequences on both rubber trees growing capabilities and farmers financial situation.

Sampling of Phytophthora infestans and Ralstonia solani spp. from wild Solanum

In nature, plants and their pathogens are contantly adapting to each other as well as to various climatic changes. This potentially leads to diverged populations with high genetic diversity in both plant and pathogen. Understanding such variety in the pathogen and the degree of adaptation to biotic and climatic variables is of major importance for resistance breeding and to understand if and how new epidemics could arise. Their geography (...)

Sélection génomique pour l’efficience de l’utilisation des ressources chez le riz

Recently, the conjunction of access to very large number of molecular markers and the emergence of new statistical approaches has shifted the paradigm of animal & plant breeding for complex traits from “breeding by design”, based on knowledge of specific functional polymorphism, to a “genome wide” approach, predicting genetic values, without prior hypotheses on causal relationships between markers and target traits, with enough accuracy to (...)

AdCofInov (Innovating coupling technologies for Adding Coffee waste value)

Selective extraction of high added value molecules from coffee pulp waste, by innovative membrane and separation technologies

Support for a research project aimed at identifying the potential of membrane and separation technologies for the treatment of coffee pulp. Two aspects are addressed: (i) identifying toxic compounds contained in the pulp and ensuring their removal to ensure direct use of the waste and (ii) extracting/separating/concentrating targeted compounds with high added value. The PhD involved in this project will be in charge of the research (...)

Séminaire en économie agricole sur la gouvernance de l’alimentation durable

The seminar is entitled: "Governance of food chains and consumption dynamics: what are the impacts on food security and sustainability? It will help to assess how interactions between different actors in food chains, including consumers, can lead to more sustainable food supply and consumption mechanisms. It will highlight the "missing link" between food consumption and production, which is more often invisible and undocumented than absent. (...)

Agropolis plant modelling seminar

Séminaires Agropolis sur la modélisation des plantes

Since January 2013, the seminar has attracted scientists from various disciplines and research units. The audience has fluctuated between 20 and 70 persons with an average of 40 at monthly seminars. Two monthly seminars were organized jointly with Institut de Biologie Computationelle. We organized in March 2014 a two-day workshop about models from the cellular to the organ scale. About 100 persons including scientists from different european (...)

Séminaires d’Agropolis sur les plantes numériques

Since November 2008, the seminar has attracted scientists from various disciplines and research units. The audience has fluctuated between 20 and 60 persons with an average of 40 at monthly seminars. We organized in March 2009 a one-day workshop about models at the cellular and tissular scales. In March 2010, we jointly organized with IFR 127 Daphne a two-day workshop dedicated to "Imaging, phenotyping and modelling plant organ (...)
