UMR 1332 BFP : key elements

UMR 1332 - Bâtiment IBVM

Currently counting slightly over 150 staff members including non-permanent personnel, UMR 1332 BFP is a partnership between INRAE [Divisions of Biology and Plant Breeding (BAP) and Plant Health and Environment (SPE)] and the University of Bordeaux. It constitutes the major pillar of plant biology research in Nouvelle-Aquitaine. In parallel to its research activities, BFP has a strong involvement in teaching and training in the Plant Sciences field but also in Microbiology and Biochemistry.

The research carried out in UMR BFP broadly belongs to the Plant Sciences field, with three main topics or scientific areas: (i) the development and metabolism of reproduction in fleshy fruits (tomato and strawberry, FDFE and Meta Teams), (ii) the adaptation of plants (FDFE and Meta Teams) and of fruit trees (cherry, A3C Team) to climate change, and (iii) non-cultivable plant pathogens (viruses and phytoplasmas) and their interactions with their host plants and vectors (Viro and Molli Teams).

UMR BFP has strong partnerships and has a high international visibility, as indicated by the coordination of several EU-funded projects or collaborative networks, the establishment of an International Associated Laboratory with the University of Tsukuba (LIA FReQUenCE: FRuit QUality in Changing Environment) and participation in a number of international projects. BFP also shows strong partnerships in several areas with the industry or with grower organizations (CTIFL, INVENIO, ASTRHEDOR, CIVB…).

UMR BFP hosts two technology platforms [Metabolome, and Plant Imaging] which contribute to consortia nationally recognized by the GIS IBiSA and INRAE. It also manages a large experimental facility with installations dedicated to plant experimentation under controlled conditions, including a high-level containment greenhouse (level BSL3/4). UMR BFP also operates a service platform offering diagnostics of unknown plant viruses by high-throughput sequencing.
