Altogether, it covers a wide range of disciplinary fields in Biology (including theoretical and evolutionary biology), Agronomical sciences, Mathematics (biostatistics and mathematical modeling) and Bioinformatics. In such a multidiciplinary environment, our specificity is population genetics and genomics for quantitative traits observed at different integration levels in contrasted environments : molecular phenotypes, architectural or developmental traits, yield components and adaptive traits. Our scientific production is excellent and recognized worldwide. We also contribute to the valorization of cultivated biodiversity in wheat (participative selection) and maize (marker-assisted selection, genomic selection).
