We had to say goodbye to Clémence Plissonneau last Friday. Clémence was an essential part of our lab since January 2016 when she joined us on a INRA Young Scientist fellowship
Clémence built up an incredible skill set in genomics and transcriptomics very quickly. For a sample of her work look here and here. In addition to her own work, she was also highly prolific in helping out numerous collaborators at the ETH and beyond. Clémence now moves on to a career in industry in Southern France. Best of wishes from the whole lab - You will be missed!
Thomas Badet joins us on a 3-month fellowship to work on the genomics of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. Thomas is doing his PhD at the National Institute for Agronomic Research (INRA), Toulouse, France.
His research interests:
Thomas’ work in Toulouse aims at identifying molecular actors underlying quantitative disease resistance to the pathogenic fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum using natural populations of Arabidopsis thaliana and association genomics. He’s hosted in our lab for a three month period to develop population genomic and phylogenomic tools within the Sclerotiniaceae family with a focus on understanding the genetic basis of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum multi-parasitism.
November 2014-present: PhD student, Laboratory of Plant Microbe Interactions, National Institute for Agronomic Research, Toulouse, France.
2013-2014: Master thesis in S. Raffaele’s team, University of Toulouse Paul Sabatier, France.
Thesis title: “Functional analysis of an Arabidopsis putative quantitative disease resistance gene to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum”
2012-2014: Master in Plant Biology, University of Toulouse Paul Sabatier, France.
2008-2011: Bachelor in Biology, University of Rennes I, France.
