“Revisiting the immunity of hydathodes, forgotten leaf organs infected by vascular Xanthomonas“- Laurent Noel

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at 12:20pm

Plant Science Building, 404

Laurent Noel 
CNRS in Toulouse

After a basic training in molecular biology and genetics (ENS Lyon), Laurent NOEL worked on Resistance gene cloning in pepper (Bonas lab, CNRS, Gif/Yvette, France, Master degree) and R gene evolution in Arabidopsis (J. Jones lab, Sainsbury lab, Norwich UK, civil service). He then moved to the analysis of chaperones/cochaperone machinery in establishing plant immunity (Parker lab, Max Planck Institute, Cologne, Germany, Post-doc) and in mediating auxin signalling and abiotic stress tolerance (Nussaume’s lab, CEA, Cadarache, CR2 CNRS). Previously, his PhD work dealt with the identification of the hrp regulon in Xanthomonas (Bonas lab, Martin-luther university, Halle/Saale, Germany) and lead to the identification of novel type III effectors named Xop (Xanthomonas outer proteins). Since 2008, he joined the LIPM to investigate Xop contribution to Xanthomonas virulence and identify plant targets of Xops. He is also exploring Xanthomonas genetic diversity by genomics and transcriptomics to develop genome-wide association studies.
