GEvAD - Genomics, Evolution and Adaptation of Domesticated plants

Genomics, Evolution and Adaptation of Domesticated plants

We characterize genomic diversity patterns of domesticated plants and their wild relatives to study:

We use an integrative approach combining bioinformatics and molecular tools, phenotype measurements, population genomics, statistical modeling and systems biology. The team’s Professors teach courses in evolution, population and quantitative genetics, plant genomics, plant breeding, biostatistics at AgroParisTech and Université Paris-Saclay.


Emergence, evolution and diffusion of domesticated plants

Karine Alix, Harry Belcram, Pierre Gérard, Martine Le Guilloux, Domenica Manicacci, Agnès Rousselet, Maud Tenaillon

Domestication syndrome at the phenotypic and molecular scales
Arthur Wojcik

  • How have the wild and domesticated compartments evolved?
  • What is the impact of human-driven selection on genetic correlations between characters, gene co-expression patterns, gene regulatory networks?
  • What is the contribution of TEs to genomic structure of species complex?

Reproductive isolation between wild and cultivated forms
Arthur Wojcik

  • What is the extent of reproductive barriers?
  • What are the links between these barriers and the levels of historical, genomic and phenotypic divergence?
  • What are their molecular determinants? \

Genomic consequences of interspecific hybridization

  • What are the molecular responses to allopolyploidy (activation of transposable elements, gene and small non-coding RNA expression)?
  • What is the impact of allopolyploidy-triggered structural variations on the repertoire of micro RNAs?
  • Can we characterize the relationships between structural and functional changes?

Domestication of interspecific interactions (maize-bean coculture)
Noa Vazeux-Blumental

  • What are the American origins of intercropped maize and bean landraces that are nowadays cultivated in Europe?
  • What are the genetic determinants of the success of this crop association (complementarity and facilitation)?

Gene regulation, structural variations and polygenic adaptation.

Karine Alix, Maud Fagny, Johann Joets, Clémentine Vitte

Pangenomics and adaptation
We study the accessory (present-absent) genes and their contribution to the plant development and its response to the environment.

  • What are the structural and functional characteristics of accessry genes compared to core genes?
  • What is the contribution of accessory genes to adaptation?
  • Which evolutionnary forces are driving the accessory genome?

Transposable elements, cis-regulatory elements and gene expression regulation
We are studying the contribution of transposable elements to the evolution of the genes’ expression.

  • To what extend do transposable elements contribute to cis-regulatory elements regulating gene expression?
  • Which biological functions do they regulate?
  • Are they important in regulating the plant’s response to the environment?
  • What is the impact of transposable elements-led structural variation on gene expression regulation?

Adaptive responses of gene expression regulatory networks
Thomas-Sylvestre Michau
We are studying the response of gene expression regulatory networks to the environment, and their role in crops adaptation.

  • To which extent are the gene expression regulatory networks rewired in response to environmental constraints?
  • What is the link between gene regulatory network rewiring and crops phenotypic response?
  • Does the gene regulatory network structure constrain or facilitate the adaptation of polygenic characters to the environment?

To tackle these questions, we use maize development and response to abiotic stresses (mainly to water deficit) as a model. We generate genomic (genome assembly, panels resequencing), epigenomic (methylome and ATAC-seq), and transcriptomic (RNA-seq) data, that we analyze using tools and approaches from bioinformatics, biostatistics and systems biology.
