Unité de Recherche de Génomique Fonctionnelle et Physiologie des Plantes (UGFP2) de l’ISBS

 

Unité de Recherche de Génomique Fonctionnelle et Physiologie des Plantes (UGFP2)

 

Directeur : Pr. Moez Hanin
 
L'UGFP2  a comme double objectif d’améliorer la qualité (biofortification) et la productivité de plantes d’intérêt comme les céréales en conditions adverses (salinité, sécheresse & carence minérale) mais aussi de valoriser des protéines végétales, associées aux stress, dans des applications biotechnologiques et thérapeutiques.
L'UGFP2 comprend une équipe pluridisciplinaire de chercheurs ayant une expertise en génomique fonctionnelle, biologie moléculaire, biochimie et microbiologie ainsi qu'en physiologie du stress chez les plantes. Elle possède également une bonne maitrise des techniques de génomique, transcriptomique (i.e. PCR quantitative, RNA-seq), protéomique (i.e. protéine recombinante, co-immunoprécipitation) et de physiologie végétale.
Les principaux thèmes de recherche développés au sein de l'UGFP2 sont:
- Cycle cellulaire et contrôle de la biomasse végétale face aux contraintes environnementales.
- Signalisation cellulaire de la réponse des plantes aux contraintes environnementales.
- Tolérance des plantes aux carences minérales (-P) et rôle de l’acide phytique dans le contrôle de la signalisation et l'homéostasie en Pi
- Exploitation du potentiel des bactéries de type PGPR (Plant Promoting Growth Rhizobacteria) dans l'amélioration de la tolérance des plantes aux stress de l'environnement
- Valorisation biotechnologique des macromolécules végétales associées aux stress
 
Mots clés :
Tolérance aux Stress, Céréales, Génomique Fonctionnelle, Signalisation Cellulaire, PGPR, Biofertilisants
 
 
UGFP2 aims at improving the quality (biofortification) and the productivity of plants of economic importance like wheat in adverse conditions (salinity, drought & mineral deficiency) but also to valorize plant stress associated proteins in diverse biotechnological applications.
The UGFP2 comprises a multidisciplinary team of researchers with expertise in functional genomics, molecular biology, biochemistry and microbiology as well as in plant stress physiology. It also has a good mastery of genomics, transcriptomics (i.e. quantitative PCR, RNA-seq), proteomics (i.e. recombinant protein, co-immunoprecipitation) and plant physiology techniques.
The main research topics developed within the IGFP2 are:
- Cell cycle and control of plant biomass during environmental constraints.
- Plant Cellular signaling of the response to environmental constraints.
- Plant Tolerance towards mineral deficiencies (-P) and role of phytic acid in the control of signaling and homeostasis of Pi
- Potential of Plant Promoting Growth Rhizobacteria (PGPR) bacteria in improving plant tolerance to environmental stress
- Biotechnological valorization of plant macromolecules associated to stress
 
Key words:
Stress Tolerance, Cereals, Functional Genomics, Cellular Signalling, PGPR, Biofertilizers.
