Management of the TILLING plateform

GFDF group (Dir C Rothan) of UMR 1332 (Dir T Candresse) has developed a new approach of mutation identification in tomato. This approach has been developed by S. Henikoff group to discover new Arabidopsis mutants in known genes. TILLING (Targeting Induced Local Lesions IN Genomes) is a strategy of reverse genetic that combines the high density of point mutations provided by traditional chemical mutagenesis with rapid mutational screening to discover induced lesions.

Two EMS mutant populations have been developed in Microtom, a model genotype of small size and could be screened to search mutants, a first of 3500 M2 phenotyped families and a second of 4000 M2 families.

I am in charge of the plateform TILLING, which is a component of the “Plateforme Génome-Transcriptome” (Dir R Petit) from “Centre de Génomique Fonctionnelle de Bordeaux” (Dir C Rolin).

Research program

Map-based cloning of genes involved in cuticule formation and early fruit developpement
