BIO: I received my PhD in Microbial Ecology from the University of Paris XI (Orsay) in 2004 with Yves DESSAUX and Phil OGER as my advisers. My PhD research project was focused on the biological stability of the quorum sensing signal molecules, especially the N-acyl homoserine lactone class based on the hypothesis that these molecules need to be degraded to act as a signal, possibly by bacteria naturally occurring in the soil.        I performed my PhD in three places : in the lab ‘Plant Microorganisms Interactions’ at the Institute of Plant Sciences (ISV, Gif-sur-Yvette ; adviser : Yves Dessaux) ; in the lab of “Sciences de la Terre” at Normal School (ENS, Lyon ; adviser : Phil Oger) and at the “Institute of Infections and Immunity” at University of Nottingham (Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham; advisers: Paul Williams, Miguel Camara and Siri Ram Chhabra)(European Union Marie Curie programme). The 15th of october 2004, I defended my thesis (Jury: P. SIMONET, S. REVERCHON, D. HAAS, M. DUBOW, Y. DESSAUX, P. OGER).

The 22th of october 2004, I was hired as Junior Research associate (CR2) in the EFPA (Forest, Grassland and Aquatic Environments) department of the French National Institute for Agricultural Reasearch (INRA), at the interface between two research units: i) The “Tree microbes interactions” (IAM, UMR1136) unit and ii) the “Biogeochemical cycles in forest ecosystems” (BEF, UR1138) unit. I am member of the Ecogenomic team in the IAM unit and Mineral weathering team in the BEF unit. In January 2009, I became Research associate (CR1).

The 24th of februrary 2014, I defended my HDR (Habilitation à diriger des recherches) entitled “Ecology of biotic and abiotic interactions of the forest soil bacterial communities: characterization of the actors, mechanims and related genes” (Jury: C. MOUGEL, P. SIMONET, S. VUILLEMIER, R. MARMEISSE, L. MOULIN, P. LEBLOND, E. GELHAYE, P. OGER and P. FREY-KLETT).

I was appointed INRA Research Director (DR2) in december 2014. From january 2020 to january 2022 I was head of the Ecogenomics of interactions team.

In 2022 I was appointed Head of the Cluster of Excellence ARBRE (Advanced Research on the Biology of Tree Biology and Forest Ecosystems)(US 1371 INRAE)  with Myriam LEGAY and Mathieu PETRISSANS as co-directors.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Project 1: Forest soil as a reservoir of microbial biodiversity (specific diversity and functional metagenomic)

Forest soil are characterized by complex microbial communities. To appreciate this diversity, we combine direct or indirect approaches to extract gDNA. The direct approach (DNA extraction for soil samples) is used to analyse fungal and archaeal/bacterial diversity. The indirect approach (density gradient; Nycodenz) is used to focuse only on bacterial diversity.

The metagenomic DNA is then used for monogenic metagenomics studies (Buée et al., 2009; Lepleux et al., 2012; Uroz et al., 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016), for massive metagenomics (Uroz et al., 2013), microarrays (Colin et al., Scient. Rep. 2017) or construction of fosmid libraries (Torres et al., 2017).

Through these different approaches, we are characterizing how the different environmental and anthropic factors structure archaea, bacteria and fungi in forest environments.

A large part of these aspects has been synthesized in a review article published in Soil Biology and Biochemistry ‘Ecology of the forest microbiome: Highlights of temperate and boreal ecosystems‘.

Project 2: Ecology of the mineral weathering bacteria in forest soils

To date no functional genes related to mineral weathering by heterotrophic soil bacterial communities have been identified. To elucidate this process, we developed a cultivation-dependent approach to highlight the functional potentials of the soil bacteria using different bioassays measuring the ability to solubilize inorganic phosphorous, mobilize iron or weather biotite. Our works are mainly based on the analysis of to acidic forest site in central France (Breuil-Chenue), in little Britany (Fougères) or in the Meuse region (Montiers).

a- Relationship bacterial diversity and functional ability
We focused our analysis on various ecological niches such as the mycorrhizal roots (mycorrhizosphere)(Calvaruso et al., 2010; Uroz et al., 2007), the hyphosphere, the rhizosphere, the surrounding bulk soil and the soil minerals (mineralosphere) (Uroz et al, Geomicrobiology J. 2012; Lepleux et al., 2012; Colin et al., 2017) looking at the relative distribution of the bacterial communities in these niches.

b- Specific case of the Collimonas
Our works highlighted that the collimonads mainly isolated in poor nutrients or pristine environments such as dune, acidic soil, rock surfaces were very efficient to weather minerals, suggesting an oligotrophc lifestyle (Uroz et al., 2009, 2014; Leveau et al., 2010).

c- Seasonal effect on the mineral weathering bacterial communities
We compared the rhizosphere bacterial communities to those of the bulk soil under beech and spruce stands  and during seasons (spring, summer, autumn and winter). We showed that the functional and taxonomic structures of the mineral weathering bacterial communities  varied significantly with the tree species as well as with season. The weathering efficacy of the rhizosphere isolates was significantly higher for the autumn isolates compared to the isolates sampled in the other seasons under the beech stand and in summer compared to the other seasons under spruce. These results suggest that seasonal differences do occur in forest soil bacterial communities and that evergreen and deciduous trees do not follow the same dynamic (Collignon et al., 2011).

d- Impact of the nutrient availability on the structuration of the mineral weathering bacterial communities
A good example to test this impact in the field remains the mineral amendment (liming) practice on tree plantation or natural forest. During the last years, we have studies the impact of such amendment on the long-term in a beech plantation of the experimental site of Fougère (site managed by C. Nys and A. Legout) and then on the short-term using a small-scale plantation in the experimentala site of Breuil-Chenue (site managed by J. Ranger and A. Legout).
Using a cultivation dependent approach, we highlighted that 33 years after amendment, the amended plot was chararcterized by low concentrations of some nutritive cations and by the enrichment of efficient mineral weathering bacterial communities compared to the control plot (non amended). Our results highlights that on the long-term, one pulse of amendment can create ‘secondary deficiencies’ (Uroz et al., SBB 2011; Lepleux et al., 2013).
Using a microcosm approach we have manipulated the soil properties to deterrmine how these changes impact the taxonomic and functional diversity of the soil bacteria (Nicolitch et al., draft)

e) Soil type effect
We are considering the links between the soil properties and the distribution of the microbial communities. The choice of the experimental sites is critical as we are interested in functional aspects in the relation to pedogenesis and plants species. In this context, we are especially interested in natural toposequences or chronosequences. One of our project (France-Berkeley, Coll. JHJ Leveau) was developed on the ecological staircase of Mendocino. This natural site is characterized by a same mineral parental material varying in age. In other words, this site presents similar soil with different level of weathering. Using a combination of cultivation-dependent and -independent approaches, we highlighted the relations existing between the soil parameters and the taxonomic and functional diversity of the bacterial communities along the Mendocino terraces (Uroz et al., SBB 2014). We have also investigated how such conditions affect the fungal communities. A second project (Labex project INABACT) is focusing on the natural toposequence of Montiers which is characterized by a succession 3 soil types on a short gradient of 1.5 km and a homogenous land cover dominated by beech trees.

Project 3: Investigation of the molecular mechanisms used by mineral weathering bacteria

a) Genomic characterization of effective mineral weathering bacterial strains
To investigate molecular mechanisms used by heterotrophic bacteria to weather minerals, we sequenced the genome of  three model bacterial strains: i) Caballeronia mineralivorans (i.e. Burkholderia mineralivorans) PML1(12), ii) Collimonas sp. PMB3(1) and iii) Pseudomonas sp. PML3(3). We used a suite of sequencing methods (454, Illumina short and 20kb fragments and Nanopore MinION). The genomes of these model strains have been assembled. The first draft version of the strain PML1(12)  is presented in Uroz and Oger (Genome annoucement 2015) and the final version is deposited on MAGE under private access. The analysis of the physiological and genomic properties allowed to the proposition of a new species name for PML1(12), which is now Caballeronia mineralivorans sp. (Uroz and Oger, System Appl Microbiol 2017).The genome of PMB3(1) was also mined (Picard et al., 2020). At last the genome of the strain PML3(3) was assembled using a hybrid assembly of Nanopore and Illumina data. We are currently mining these genomes to highlight the specific functions carried by these effective mineral weathering bacterial strains.

b) Elucidation of the molecular mechanisms used by bacteria to interact and to weather minerals
To investigate molecular mechanisms used by heterotrophic bacteria to weather bacteria, we combined a suite of genomic and genetic tools (transcriptomic, proteomic and genesis of random mutant libraries and targeted mutagenesis) to evidence candidate genes and determine their function. The use of a combination of transcriptomics and proteomics allowed to evidence the functions activated or repressed in presence/absence of the mineral (Uroz et al. 2020). Molecular analyses permitted to better understand the diversity of mechanisms used by bacteria to weather minerals (Picard et al. 2021). The work performed evidenced the role of GMC oxidoreductase in the mineral weathering process by Collimonas. The role of siderophore was also evidenced, but only in buffered condition (PIcard et al. 2022). The new findings provide us a clearer understanding of the mechanisms and genes involved in mineral weathering by bacteria and on their diversity (Uroz et al. 2022).

Project 4: Impact of bacteria on the nutrient cycling (Microcosm approach)

One of our goal is to determine the impact of the soil bacterial communities on the minerals and to determine their relative contribution in the mineral weathering process.

a. Interactions bacteria/plants:

Previous experiments developed in the team (Calvaruso et al., 2006) have demonstrated the impact mineral weathering bacteria on tree nutrition and mineral weathering. The strain PML1(12) of B. glathei significantly improved pine growth when the seedlings were supplied with a nutrient solution which did not contain the nutrients present in the biotite. No improvement of pine growth was observed when the seedlings were supplied with all the nutrients necessary for pine growth. We therefore propose that the growth-promoting effect of B. glathei PML1(12) mainly resulted from the improved plant nutrition via increased mineral weathering.

b. Interactions bacteria/plants/mycorrhizal fungi:

More recently, we tested the impact of inoculation of efficient mineral weathering in microcosms containing pine seedling associated or not with two ectomycorrhizal fungi: Laccaria bicolor and Scleroderma citrinum (Koele et al., 2009). In vitro assays have demonstrated that the two fungal strains used in our experiments were not efficient to weather minerals. Notably, co-inoculating the mycorrhizal fungus S. citrinum and the efficient mineral-weathering B. glathei bacterial strain PML1(12) in microcosms significantly improved the Mg budget. Similarly, co-inoculating S. citrinum with the Collimonas sp. bacterial strain PMB3(1) significantly improved the pine biomass compared to non-inoculated pine plants.
