Laboratory of developmental plant biology (LBDP)
The main goal of the LBDP is to elucidate the phosphate signalling pathway in plants. Besides its interest for fundamental research (mechanisms triggering ion perception by plants remain mostly unknown), Pi modulates the availability of cations (including metals) in soil and is also a key parameter controlling the production of energetic compounds (starch, lipids). Therefore, our research may find applications in the field of bioenergy and bioremediation.
