Our research data are produced thanks to work of men and women employed by INRA, but also by other public research organisms (CNRS) or University (University Bordeaux Ségalène). They contribute to the education of many students during their training periods. Some young researchers are employed by private companies for performing their PhD researches in our laboratory.
