Advanced Training in Plant Genomics Methods as part of the BIOPOLIS Project, February 2024


The Advanced Plant Genomics Methods Training was held in February 2024 at AGAP (Montpellier) in the context of the BIOPOLIS project. It was a capacity building event allowing to establish scientific and technical collaborations and getting to know the functioning and organization of several different technical platforms, from phenotyping to molecular studies, in Montpellier. Throughout the week, participants from CIBIO were able to discover and discuss various scientific important questions in plant biology and crop studies but also technical ways to deal with them, having access to protocols and discovering automated platforms. 

The program comprised expert lectures covering the latest advancements in plant genomics and epigenomics research and guided tours of laboratories and technical platforms. The participants had the opportunity to meet several potential collaborators in Montpellier: starting with the AGAP Institute director, they met researchers, engineers, platform’s coordinators and technicians conceiving and implementing the protocols, from different research Institutes in Montpellier (AGAP, ARCAD, CEFE, DIADE, CIRAD, Inst. Agro, PHIM, …). The interaction was extremely rich and the scope of the conferences and visits was broad and very interesting.

The event was coordinated by Sylvain Santoni and attended by the following BIOPOLIS-CIBIO researchers and technicians: Helena Carvalho, Manuel Curto, Mónica Moura, Raquel Tavares, Sara Freitas, Diana Castro, Mariana Almeida, Patrícia Ribeiro and Susana Lopes.
