Former Research projects
My projects have always focused on receptor kinases, in animal during my PhD (Université de Montréal, Canada, with Paul Jolicoeur (IRCM)), and in plants: Arabidopsis (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA, with Steven E. Clark and Jianming Li) and rice (CIRAD, Montpellier, France with Emmanuel Guiderdoni and Christophe Périn).
As a research associate at CIRAD since June 2011, I pursue my work on Leucine-Rich Repeat Receptor-Like Kinases (LRR-RLKs):
Plant LRR-RLKs are composed of an amino-terminal extracellular domain (ECD) containing a signal peptide (grey), cysteine pairs (blue), the LRRs (red), a transmembrane domain (black), and an intracellular domain containing the kinase domain (orange). The LRRs are highly versatile in number and structure allowing a whole range of protein-protein interactions.
In the last 20 years, many research groups have demonstrated major roles played by LRR-RLKs in plants during almost all developmental processes throughout the life of the plant and in defense/resistance against a large range of pathogens and abiotic stresses.We were using bioinformatics and reverse genetics to study the function of these receptors in root adaptive development of rice.
in the frame of the Net4FS european project
My research there was focusing on the evolutionary history of Receptor-Like Kinases (RLKs) in the 3000 sequenced rice genomes. I was working in close collaboration with Pr. Chaochun Wei.
