Raphaël Mercier—unraveling the mysteries of plant genetics

A brilliant researcher sheds light on key cellular mechanisms using a plant model. The 2016 winner of the Scientific Breakthrough Award is Raphaël Mercier, who is a research director in the Meiosis and Recombination group at the Jean-Pierre Bourgin Institute, which is part of the INRA center of Versailles-Grignon.

Delving into agroecology

Sabrina Gaba, a research scientist at the Agroecology Research Unit in Dijon, works with wild plant communities. She has shown that these plants that sprout up all on their own in fields or along roadsides play an important role in the agroecosystem. Reducing pesticide use to eliminate them would be beneficial to both farmers and biodiversity in farming areas.

Pathogen-related harvest losses: analysis and quantification

It is not easy to quantify pathogen-related harvest losses, particularly when damage affects the vegetative parts of plants and recurs in subsequent years.  Several projects have contributed to modelling these losses and thus enable an evaluation of the efficacy of the different solutions proposed.

Divide and rule, or how plant diversity increases the sustainability of their resistance

In the Yuanyang region of China where rice cultivation is a tradition, scientists from INRA and CIRAD, working in collaboration with a Chinese team, have focused on the defence mechanisms of rice against its pathogenic agents. They have shown how the very differing immune systems of two rice varieties that have been co-cultivated for centuries have united their forces to evade pathogenic agents in a sustainable manner. Published in eLIFE, these findings underline the importance of the functional diversity of plants to limiting epidemics at the scale of a landscape.

Asthma: a "health" effect of lung bacteria demonstrated for the first time

INRA scientists*, working in collaboration with their colleagues from Ghent University (Belgium)  have revealed for the first time that certain bacteria in the lungs may be associated with beneficial or harmful effects on asthma. This work, published in The ISME Journal on 3 January 2017, shows that the microbial community present in the lungs (pulmonary microbiota) constitutes an as yet unexplored source of bacteria, or substances produced by bacteria, which could attenuate certain respiratory diseases such as asthma.
