Microbiologie végétale

 

Recherche et / ou projets en cours

Les projets de recherche actuels se concentrent sur les progrès de la production agricole durable impliquant le diagnostic des maladies et la résistance; caractérisation microbienne pour la santé des plantes et la sécurité du système alimentaire; et l'innovation améliorant la performance économique et les avantages pour toutes les parties prenantes.

 

Énoncés de recherches/projets

  • Élaboration de stratégies de prévention des maladies pour les cultures horticoles, comme la pomme de terre, qui améliorent la sécurité sanitaire et la qualité des aliments.

  • Caractériser les agents pathogènes endémiques d'origine alimentaire et produire des diagnostics qui aident à protéger la santé et l'environnement.

  • Introduire de nouveaux germoplasmes et variétés de plantes résistants aux maladies pour une augmentation durable de la production et une expansion du marché.
