Person in charge : Sabine Wiedemann-Merdinoglu

Bandeau plateforme phénotypage

A platform to: 

  • assess the level of resistance of genetic resources and study collections under controlled conditions
  • identify and characterize resistance factors in Vitis vinifera and related species
  • perform the evaluation requested by the CTPS for applicants of new vine varieties claiming resistance

The equipment:

  • a biosafety S2 greenhouse dedicated to the growth of pathogen-free plant material before phenotyping
  • a mycology laboratory including automatic symptom reading by image analysis and quantitative evaluation of resistance
  • climate chambers for the production of pathogenic inoculum and the incubation of inoculated samples
  • single use cardboard structures used to multiply and inoculate pathogens thereby ensuring their confinement and developed specifically

The platform was co-financed with the support of the Ministère de l'Enseignement Supérieur, de la Recherche et de l'Innovation, the Conseil Départemental du Haut Rhin, the Région Grand Est (Alsace) and  Colmar Agglomération in the framework of CPER 2007-2013.
