15th Plants-Bacteria Meetings

Aussois 2022

Due to the health situation, the 15th Plants and Bacteria Meeting will be held by visioconference on three mornings, January 25, 26 and 27, 2022 (see programme here). For these presentations, we have given priority to invited speakers and young researchers.

The next face-to-face Plants and Bacteria Meeting in Aussois has been postponed to the week of march 20-24, 2023. Registration for the January 2022 Plants and Bacteria Meeting is equivalent to registration for the next Plants and Bacteria Meeting in March 2023.


Scientific sessions:

  • Evolution, phylogeny and plant and bacterial genomics
  • Emergence, epidemiology, ecology and population biology
  • Plant health management: diagnostic, biocontrol and other methods
  • Molecular dialog during plant-bacteria interactions
  • Physiology of plant-bacteria interactions: regulation, epigenetics, metabolites
  • Plant immunity and resistance breakdown
  • Symbiotic and mutualistic interactions: players, control, evolutionary origins
  • Effect of the environment on plant-bacteria interactions
  • Chemical ecology, secondary metabolites
  • Structure, function and engineering of the microbiome within the phytobiome

Confirmed speakers:

A round table on Analytical chemistry of specialized metabolites for interaction analysis will be moderated by David Toubouland Véronique Eparvier, Institut de Chimie des Substances Naturelles, CNRS-Université Paris-Saclay, Gif sur Yvette, France
