Description (English)

Research at BF2I is focused on the comprehension of the functions managing the interaction of specific insect pests (aphids and weevils) with their direct biological partners (host plants and symbiotic microorganisms). Research approaches are multi-disciplinary thanks to the different expertise of the staff members.

The central theme of our research is to understand the relationships established between insects and their symbionts elucidating the molecular mechanisms that allow the establishment, maintenance and persistence of these complex interactions in multiple insect generations.

The final goal of research on these complex biological interactions, often involving multiple partners in interaction with the environment, is to identify tools and define new concepts for an integrated approach for plant protection against insect pests. Our research results are to be central for the development of agricultural practices that are sustainable, and respect both the environment and human health.

Description (English)

IMGT®, the international ImMunoGeneTics information system®, http://www.imgt.org, is the global reference in immunogenetics and immunoinformatics, created in 1989 by Marie-Paule Lefranc (Université Montpellier 2 and CNRS). IMGT® is a high-quality integrated knowledge resource specialized in the immunoglobulins (IG) or antibodies, T cell receptors (TR), major histocompatibility (MH) of human and other vertebrate species, and in the immunoglobulin superfamily (IgSF), MH superfamily (MhSF) and related proteins of the immune system (RPI) of vertebrates and invertebrates. IMGT® provides a common access to sequence, genome and structure Immunogenetics data, based on the concepts of IMGT-ONTOLOGY and on the IMGT Scientific chart rules. IMGT® works in close collaboration with EBI (Europe), DDBJ (Japan) and NCBI (USA). IMGT® consists of sequence databases, genome database, structure database, and monoclonal antibodies database, Web resources and interactive tools.

The specificity of the laboratory is to associate competences from genomic and postgenomic on one side, and of population and ecosystem biology and ecology, on the other side. The application domains of these works are related to the environment and to the human and animal health. The general scientific strategy consists (i) to move closer genome and environment in order to favour the development of molecular ecology, and (ii) to develop interdisciplinary approaches towards the integrated knowledge of complex systems, mainly through the implementation of high-throughput tools.
