Research projects performed by the UMR INRAE/Lorraine University 1136 « Interactions Arbres-Microorganismes » are dedicated to the biology and the ecology of the interactions between microorganisms and forest trees.
The ultimate goals of these projects are to improve our knowledge and our understanding of the interactions that take place between trees, fungi and bacteria, and that contribute to the sustainable functioning of forest ecosystems.
The Department headed by S. Duplessis is organized into three teams:
- Stress response and redox regulation team (Leader : M. Morel-Rouhier)
- Ecogenomics of Interactions team (Leader : S. Uroz)
- Ecology of forest pathogenic fungi team (Leader : P. Frey)
and is supported by technical platforms
IAM is member of the Lab of Excellence for Advanced Research on the Biology of TRee and Forest Ecosystems (ARBRE)
