The mission of the Institut des Sciences des Plantes de Paris-Saclay (IPS2) is to better understand the genetic and molecular mechanisms that control plant growth and their regulation by endogenous and exogenous signals of biotic (bacteria and fungi) and abiotic (environmental stress, nutrients) origin. The research projects developed mainly combine genomics, molecular and cellular biology, bioinformatics and physiology approaches. Current scientific priorities of IPS2 include epigenomics, plant adaptation to climate change, and biocontrol. The institute has five external platforms: translational biology, transcriptomics, metabolomics, interactomics and epigenomics. IPS2's research activity is intended to focus on both fundamental and applied research projects, particularly innovative translational biology projects on cultivated plants in partnership with industrial partners, with the aim of helping to improve the agriculture of tomorrow.
