Thèmes de recherches

Développer des approches de génomique fonctionnelle (transcriptome) pour identifier les gènes impliqués dans la réponse adaptative des arbres forestiers vis-à-vis de contraintes environnementales. Différents modèles utilisés (pin maritime et sécheresse, Chênes blancs européens et anoxie)
Création de bio-puces pin maritime et chênes
Développer des méthodes de microdissection par capture laser afin de se focaliser sur les cellules cibles du caractère étudié (e.g. cellules de garde des stomates pour la sécheresse)
Etude d’expression de gènes candidats en populations naturelles (validation des gènes candidats)
Caractérisation moléculaire de QTLs impliqués dans l’adaptation des arbres forestiers (BSA sur ARNm et puces à ADNc).
