UMR 1332 Biologie du Fruit et Pathologie

Technological and biological resources

The research teams of UMR 1332 BFP are heavily involved in the development of technological and biological resources supporting their research. These resources (technology platforms, biological collections, experimental infrastructure ...) are also widely open to the wider scientific community.

  • The two technological platforms (Metabolome, and Plant Imaging) are integrated in wider consortia federated in the Génomique Fonctionnelle Bordeaux initiative. These platforms are recognized by the GIS IBiSA and by the Commission Nationale des Outils Communs (CNOC) of INRA. The UMR also hosts two technical platforms for the viral indexing of plant samples and for the development, evaluation and production of monoclonal antibodies.
  • Biological resources of strategic importance managed by UMR 1332 BFP are a collection of tomato Tilling mutants and a collection of Phytoplasmas that is probably the largest in the world.
  • The experimental facility associated with UMR 1332 BFP manages a large pool of growth chambers and greenhouses for plant experimentation under biological containment conditions, including a High Containment greenhouse that meet the S3/S4 standards.
  • UMR 1332 BFP also contributes to two databases :

                     The Mery-B database, dedicated to plant metabolomics

                     The Molligen database, dedicated to the comparative genomics of Mollicutes (partnership with the Centre for Bioinformatics of Bordeaux, CBiB).
