BIOlogie GEstion des Risques en agriculture (BIOGER)

Laboratory presentation

The BIOGER laboratory develops projects to fight pathogenic plants fungi that are responsible for major loss in agronomy. Among these fungi studied, we can mention the septoriosis, fusariose, cereals rusts, rapeseed phoma or the vine gray rot. These studies are carried out on different biology scales: from genome to infectious mechanisms to evolutionary dynamics and epidemiology. The overall objective of this work is to meet societal expectations in terms of sustainable and environmentally-friendly control of fungal diseases in field crops and risk management related to the spread and adaptive potential of phytopathogenic fungi. This research are carried out through several collaborative projects in partnership with the main agrochemical firms.
