Institut Sophia Agrobiotech

The Sophia Agrobiotech Institute aims to address some of the challenges offered for agricultural research in the field of ecological management of agroecosystems. Situated at the interface of Environment and Agriculture, the main research topics concern the study of plant-interactions, pathogens and symbionts and their dynamics in time and space. For this, the Institute brings together strong expertise in comparative, evolutionary and functional genomics, in community ecology and agronomy. The ultimate goal is to integrate this knowledge in the development of innovative agronomic strategies (integrated pest management, biological control), more environmentally friendly and human health.
