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.
