Fabrice Roux on how plants respond to microorganisms

NCCR External Seminar

On 6 September, Fabrice Roux, from the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), will kick off the NCCR Seminar Series 2022-2023!

Dr. Roux heads the group of ‘Ecological genomics of adaptation in plant communities‘ within the Laboratory of Plant-Microorganisms Interactions. The group aims to understand and predict plant-microbe interactions using a continuum of approaches ranging from quantitative genetics to evolutionary ecology, among others in the context of global climate change. To achieve these goals, the team of Fabrice Roux investigates genetic adaptations in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, as well as in relevant crops such as wheat, rapeseed and tomato.

In 2020, Fabrice Roux received an ERC Synergy Grant to better understand and predict pathogen communities, in collaboration with teams in Germany and the USA.

Fabrice Roux will give an NCCR talk entitled: ‘A genomic map of local adaptation to microbiota and pathobiota in Arabidopsis thaliana’. The seminar will take place on 6 September 2022, from 12h00 to 13h00 CEST. You can access this public seminar through this Zoom link.
