ASSISTANT INGENIEURE

Equipe REDD

Functions – Thematic Researched 

Since January 2017, I participate in the GENIUS project (Genome ENgineering Improvement for Useful plants of a Sustainable agriculture), which aims to implement new biotechnology in tomato, for targeting genetic changes in specific locations in the genome (CRISPR-Cas 9).

My work is to perform, in tomato, replacements and modifications in endogenous alleles in more favorable alleles, involved in resistance to viruses. This is possible thanks to the new genome editing technologies that can modify precisely and specifically the sequences of our genes of interest.

Skills: molecular biology (cloning, transgenesis, protoplasts, genome editing, CRISPR-Cas 9), cell biology, bacteriology, in vitro culture, genetic
