The MOPAD project aims to develop biocontrol agent against Fusarium fungi of the soft wheat. Three partners are involved in the project: Biovitis, Vilmorin & Cie and the two labs of the CEA (the LEMiRE and our lab).
The LABGeM is involved in the genome analysis of one hundred bacteria that were screened for antagonist activity against several Fusarium strains. In complement, transcriptomics analyses will be conducted to decipher bacterial effectors.
This project is funded by bpifrance.
