This facility houses all UniLaSalle’s scientific equipment for biotechnology and plant disease research.
It is run in tandem with and complementary to the institution’s Agronomic facility.
This facility provides all that is needed for the various research and development programs related to the discipline, in particular cultivation resources (from different controlled conditions to field studies) and observation and characterization resources (microscopy and molecular biology) required for conducting genotype and phenotype studies.
Along with the usual studies on the interactions between plants and plant pathogenic fungi, this facility enables us to develop and/or implement new models (pathosystems) for studying the capacity to stimulate natural plant resistance. All tests comply with Good Experimentation Practices (GEP) and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).
This is a very important collaborative facility useful for many different research activities conducted by the various founding teams (UniLaSalle, ISA Lille, ULCO) and the PhyNoPi (Phytopathologie Nord Picardie) scientific interest group.
