The road to health

It’s just a short skip and a jump from hard sciences to public health, and it’s one that Stephane Hazebrouck made wholeheartedly. With a background in engineering and microbiology, he has followed the research path to INRA’s Food Allergy Laboratory. It’s a route that has enabled him to tackle some of society’s biggest health challenges.

A rare bird

Nicolas Cèbe of the INRA Center of Toulouse is not your ordinary animal caretaker. He is as singular as the colony of European roe deer for which he cares. He feels a deep attachment to the wild species that he encounters and studies daily. He developed his unique skill set on the job, where he dedicates himself to furthering research. His career choice was one of passion.

Where’s the beef: fake meat or real livestock production?

This report provides food for thought about a topic that is of growing concern in developed societies: livestock production and meat consumption. Drawing on various findings from research, it offers no simple answers, but rather a few trains of thought that provide a basis for building an informed opinion.

Apple: a very high quality genome obtained

An international consortium led by INRA and involving research scientists in France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and South Africa, has been able to obtain a very high quality apple genome by combining the most recent DNA sequencing technologies with classic mapping methods. Their findings provide scientists an unprecedented view of the composition and evolution of a tree genome, and offers new perspectives for the creation of new varieties, notably in order to reduce pesticide use. These results are published in Nature Genetics on 5 June 2017.
