The French National Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE) ranked as No. 1 globally, and its third party University of Bordeaux participate through UMR1332 Fruit Biology and Pathology (BFP) with topics ranging from understanding mechanisms underlying the development of plants or their interaction with pathogens or the environment to the application of this knowledge into translational research.
The BFP-Metabolism team conducts internationally recognised research centred on metabolism and plant performance that combines modelling and experimentation.
BFP-Metabolism team will provide and complete a unique dataset comprising multilevel analyses for 10 fruit species during growth and ripening. It has strong leadership in plant systems biology, more specifically metabolomics, and develops models that predict plant performance under optimal and stress conditions in order to dissect the underlying metabolic mechanisms. As such, BFP will lead WP4, in which analysis, mining and modelling of multi-omics data are key, in order to unravel unprecedented relationships between genotypes and phenotypes.
