Unravelling the emergence of the Banana Xanthomonas Wilt through a novel approach

The Banana Xanthomonas Wilt (BXW), caused by Xanthomonas vasicola pv. musacearum (Xvm), has devastated the banana plantations all over the Great Lakes region from 2001, causing very negative social impacts and biodiversity loss within the Musa germplasm.

Utilisation de coagulant-floculant biosourcé pour l’amélioration du traitement des effluents liquides de transformations de produits agro-alimentaires de pays du sud : cas des eaux usées de la transformation du manioc.

Utilisation de coagulant-floculant biosourcé pour l’amélioration du traitement des effluents liquides de transformations de produits agro-alimentaires de pays du sud : cas des eaux usées de la transformation du manioc.

The objective of this project is to study the flocculating-coagulating power of a natural biopolymer (chitosan) functionalised by quaternisation, in order to facilitate the liquid/solid separation of effluents from the cassava processing industry. The use of biopolymers as coagulants-flocculants can be of great interest because they are natural products, inexpensive and characterized by their environmental harmlessness. Chitosan (CS), the (...)

Utilisation de l’électrophorèse capillaire en mode frontal continu (FACCE) pour la caractérisation des interactions entre facteurs de transcription et séquences d’ADN cibles, un pas vers le développement d’un microsystème analytique.

The growth and development of living organisms are complex and dynamic processes that require the harmonious expression of many genes. The spatio-temporal control of gene expression is therefore a process that is central to all living organisms, from the most elementary (e.g. bacteria) to the most complex (e.g. yeast, mammals, plants). Dysfunctions in these gene regulations are responsible for several diseases in humans, and can alter the (...)

Fates of human enteric viruses after the discharge or reuse of treated wastewater

Wastewater reuse for agricultural irrigation as an alternative to wastewater dis-charge in river; environmental fate of human enteric viruses present in treated wastewater

The reuse of wastewater in agricultural irrigation adds a marginal water resource and avoids its polluting discharge into rivers. Of domestic origin, it contains human enteric viruses incriminated in epidemics transmitted by food, water and air. Optimising wastewater management requires comparing the risks of discharging it into rivers and recycling (...)
