Axis 1: Resistance to viruses by loss of susceptibility

résistance virus

To successfully infect plants, viruses have to hijack host factors. Those can be turned into genetic resistances by making them unavailable to the pathogens.

We characterize plant susceptibility factors in plants and develop genetic resistances to viruses of agricultural importance.

  • by exploring the natural diversity of vegetable crops and wild related species and developing access to those wild species
  • by studying the interactions between plant and virus and deciphering resistance pathways mechanisms
  • by screening mutated populations or developing synthetic alleles using new biotechnological techniques
