B&PMP, Biochemistry and Plant Molecular Physiology

B&PMP (Biochemistry and Plant Molecular Physiology) is defined as an Integrative Biology research department, focused on the mechanisms of plant responses and adaptation to variable abiotic environmental conditions. These last fifteen years, B&PMP has gained a strong scientific identity by unraveling the molecular mechanisms which contribute to determine the hydro-mineral balance of plants, subjected to various abiotic stresses. This has been made possible by integrating cellular, molecular, genetic, biochemical, biophysical and physiological approaches, and mainly by using the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana.

The teams of unit AGAP involved in the CultiVar project include :

  • Metal toxicity.  The scientific objectives are to identify and characterize mechanisms controlling (i) metal tolerance of plants and (ii) metal accumulation in plants
  • Aquaporins.  Research aims at understanding the various modes and regulations of water transport in plant tissues
