DescriptionThe 'Tree-Microbe Interactions' Unit is a collaboration between INRA and a University Research Department located at the Forestry Research Center in Nancy-Champenoux and the University Henri Poincaré-Nancy. The Unit is conducting extensive research on the molecular biology, physiology, pathology and ecology of trees and associated micro-organisms in forest ecosystems. The unit is undertaking research on: molecular processes leading to the development of tree roots, ectomycorrhizal symbiosis and rust poplar intearctions using functional genomics; developing molecular diagnostic tools to investigate the ecology of ectomycorrhizal fungi and pathogenic fungi in plantations and forests; analysing interactions between rhizospheric bacteria and ectomycorrhizal mycelium to assess their role in nutrient cycling in forest ecosystems (e.g. mineral weathering).
