HOLOBIONT-BASED APPROACHES TO ADAPT WHEAT TO DROUGHT STRESS
The goal of this project is to evaluate if the concept of the holobiont can be used practically to increase wheat tolerance and resistance to water stress. Funded by NSERC.
PLANT MICROBIOME ENGINEERING
The goal of this research program is to find potential ways to engineer the microbiome of economically important crops, such as wheat and soybean by studying their interactions with their microbiota. Funded by NSERC.
THE ROLE OF MIRNAS IN PLANT-MICROBIOTA INTERACTIONS IN THE RHIZOSPHERE
The goal of this project is to explore how plant miRNAs reprogram the microbiome of the rhizosphere under polcycylic aromatic hydrocarbon stress. Funded by FRQNT.
MICROBIAL-BASED PREDICTIVE MODELING OF AGRO-ECOSYSTEMS
The goal of this project is to develop a microbial-based model that will enable predicting wheat yields and quality. Funded by FRQNT
AGRONOMIC DECISION TOOL UNDER A CHANGING CLIMATE
This project aims to design biologically optimal cover crop sequences under a changing climate. Funded by MAPAQ.
TOWARDS A NEW FEEDING APPROACH OF PIGLETS
The goal of this project is to test various novel dietary supplements for piglets in order to minimize the use of non-therapeutic antibiotics. Funded by Swine Innovation.
