Séquençage du mobilome: une nouvelle technique pour identifier les rétrotransposons actifs et analyser leurs impacts épigénétiques sur les phénotypes de cultures tropicales

Transposable elements (TEs) are now recognised as major drivers of plant genome evolution, both through their mutagenic properties and though the epigenetic regulation that they can drive. TEs can be mobilized when plants have to face environmental challenges and this might have phenotypic, genetic, and epigenetic consequences. However, the repertoire of mobile TEs in stressed crops is not known. It is indeed technically challenging to (...)

Setting up a molecular epidemiology approach for unraveling the emergence of the Banana Xanthomonas Wilt

The Banana and Enset Xanthomonas Wilt (BXW/EXW), caused by Xanthomonas vasicola pv. musacearum (Xvm), constitutes a emblematic case of emergence affecting all Eastern and Central Africa. This disease was first reported in Ethiopia on several hosts (enset and banana), and is considered as the presumptive center of origin of this devastating disease. Understanding the ethiopian case is a key step for a efficient regional BXW (...)

Social Learning networks and plan diversity management in agroforestry landscapes.

Tropical agroforestry landscapes face the challenge of sustaining cash crop production while maintaining the functioning of ecosystems on which local populations rely for their livelihood. Rural populations develop local plant diversity management practices to overcome this challenge. The multi-actor relational networks in which farmers are embedded are (...)

Soil ECological function REstoration to enhance agrosystem services in rainfed rice cropping systems in agroecological transition

In the context of global change, agriculture is rapidly changing. A great importance is now given to ecological processes occurring within agrosystems. Little attention is given to soil ecological processes (i.e. soil functions) and the belowground biodiversity in agricultural practices despite their recognized high potential to enhance ecosystem service delivery and promote multiple ecosystem functions (...)
