Welcome to the Ané lab!
Understanding how symbiotic (beneficial) associations between plants and microbes
develop is an important biological question that is particularly
relevant in modern agriculture and economy.
Our laboratory seeks to understand and manipulate the
controlling symbiotic associations between plants and microbes.
We transfer information
gained from model plants such as Medicago truncatula to crops such as soybean,
rice and corn
in order to take full advantage of the fantastic opportunities offered
by these beneficial associations to our agriculture.
goal is to use microbes better to maintain the sustainability of our
agriculture by protecting the
environment over the long term and reducing costs for food, feed and biofuel production.
