Genetics and Improvement of Fruit and Vegetables
Our unit of the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA, France) carries out research on Solanaceae (tomato, pepper, eggplant and potato), melon, lettuce and on Prunus (peach and apricot). About 100 permanent staff are clustered into six research groups and experimental facilities.
Our work contributes to the key focus area of the Plant Biology and Breeding research division of INRA.
The unit is a member of the 'PACA' INRA regional centre. The 'PACA' regional centre is made up of three poles, Integrated Horticultural Production (PHI), Adaptation to Global Change (ACG) and Plant Health (PSP). We are part of the Integrated Horticultural Production (PHI) pole.
Léandro De Oliveira Lino will defend his thesis the 15th of November, 2016:
"Study of the genetic variability of peach in susceptibility to brown rot during fruit development in relation with changes in physical and biochemical characteristics of the fruit".
