Can plants be vaccinated?

Pint of Science may 2024

Emmanuelle VIGNE, Research Engineer at INRAE Grand Est-Colmar, gave a fine performance of scientific mediation on Tuesday May 14, 2024, during one of the PINT OF SCIENCE evenings (the international festival of popular science) at Café Rapp, Colmar.

To address the question "Can plants be vaccinated?", Emmanuelle explained to the audience the technique of premunition, which makes it possible to protect plants, including vines, against certain viral diseases. She also focused on her INRAE Vaccivine research program.

Her talk sparked a lively exchange with the audience, including children, who attended our evenings for the first time!
