12 June 2018 - Tillage practices change the ability of microorganisms to degrade organic matter

Stabilizing carbon in soil as organic matter is crucial at the local scale for soil fertility, and at the global scale for climate change mitigation. The carbon stocks in the soil depend on the "inputs" made in particular by organic inputs (plant litters, organic amendments, etc.) transformed into stable organic matter in the soil under microorganisms activities. They also depend on the "outputs", especially the ability of microorganisms to degrade the ‘old’ carbon stock of the soil.

22 February 2018 - Plant cell wall in super resolution!

New fluorescence microscopy techniques (so-called super resolution techniques) allows to go beyond the diffraction limit which has been considered for a long time as a barrier for microscopists. Until now, these techniques have only been used in biomedical studies.

15 February 2018 - A meta-model to predict uncertainties of N2O production

Within the framework of the Global Research Alliance for Greenhouse Gas (GRA) and FACCE-JPI projects, INRA coordinated the evaluation and inter-comparison of 24 carbon-nitrogen models (16 for field crops and 12 for grasslands), considered individually and as an ensemble, on nine experimental sites on four continents. For the first time, this work shows the potential of the model ensemble approach to jointly predict crop production and N2O emissions intensity.

07 February 2018 - New pentoses-based esters produced by enzymatic way

Agro-ressources-based surfactants such as sugar esters are ingredients of interest for various applications: cosmetics, food, phytosanitaries, detergents,… Sugar esters are biodegradable and non-toxic for human and environment. Commercial sugar esters are currently produced by chemical ways that can limit the structures and properties of produced surfactants.

20 November 2017 - Qualitative reasoning applied to cellulose hydrolysis

With the accumulation of scientific information in publications, even experts can find difficult to keep integrating new piece of information and results for modelling. The approach we propose aims at constructing mechanistic explanation from selected scientific papers using the Qualitative Reasoning framework.
