Francois Tardieu, Director of Research, French National Institute for Agriculture, Laboratory of Plant Ecophysiology under Environmental Stress
Seminar Title: Identifying combinations of alleles for the diversity of conditions associated with climate change, based on phenomics + genomic prediction + modeling
Francois Tardieu is an Ecophysiologist at INRA Montpellier (France). His research focuses on the adaptation of genotypes to drought scenarios, including those in 2050, via a combination of phenomics, modelling and genomic prediction. He coordinates the French Phenomic infrastructure and a European project on phenomics. He is invited professor in the Nanjing Agricultural University. He received awards by the French Academy, by the "laurier d'Excellence INRA" and by the Soil Science Society of America.
