Present Staff :
  • A Genissel's group

Anne Genissel (Researcher, INRAE)

  • We are very pleased to announce Apolline Petit will start a PhD this fall (funding MESRI) at the doctoral school SDSV, under the direction of Arnaud Le Rouzic. (co-sponsor A Genissel).
  • Karen Haziza (licence, University of Toulouse) will join us for 1 month in July to characterize molecular variants that are associated with natural variation of the disease in Z. tritici.
  • July 15th Madison Van't Klooster will join us (Engineer for 6 month) to study the molecular basis of Stb16 virulence and develop a molecular tool for diagnosis of virulent haplotypes in large populations of Z. tritici.
