The aim of the Allium research group is the exploitation of genetic variation in the genus Allium to enable the breeding of cultivars for a durable Allium production chain, mainly onion and leek
- Combating fungi that are a major problem in Allium crops during dry and warm periods.
- Relationship between mycorrhizal responsiveness, rooting system and Fusarium basal rot in onion.
- Thrips resistance in leek: development of screening assays, identification of sources of resistance and introgression of resistance to thrips in leek.
- Onion genome sequencing project
