Life Sciences Department

Its work seeks to gain a better understanding of how genomes (plants, microorganisms and pests) function and how living organisms interact for the benefit of agricultural production.


Characterising the dynamics and functioning of plant, pathogen and pest genomes relevant to climate change adaptation


Examining and promoting the genetic diversity of living organisms (plants, pathogens and pests), in accordance with new societal expectations


Understanding the interactions between living organisms within the agro-ecosystem, so as to make agricultural activities more sustainable
