Institut Sophia Agrobiotech

The Sophia Agrobiotech Institute (UMR Inra 1355, CNRS 7254, UNS), an international research institute funded by Inra, CNRS and University of Nice Sophia Antipolis.  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 institute aims to address some of the challenges offered for agricultural research in the field of ecological management of agroecosystems. The ultimate goal is to integrate this knowledge in the development of innovative agronomic strategies (integrated pest management, biological control), more respectful of the environment and human health.

This research program has been elected by the French Ministry of Research and Education in the framework of the very competitive scientific clusters of excellence called Labex for “Laboratoire d’Excellence”, part of the “Investments for the Future” 2011 wave governmental initiatives.  The SIGNALIFE Labex scientific project received 11 million euros for a 8-year period starting from March 2012. It aimed at developing a network between 6 remarkable academic research institutes to build one of the leading campuses in life sciences on cell signaling pathways, essential for human health and plant development.
