Research interests

The vision of “Le Labo Yergeau” is that the plant microbiome can be reengineered to promote plant health and productivity. As such, plant microbiome engineering is likely to generate solutions to many real-life problems like climate change, contaminated soils and declining food production. In the mid-term, our research program aim at finding new approaches to purposefully, reliably, and sustainably enhance the beneficial rhizosphere microbiome of important crops.
