​Understanding how symbiotic associations between plants and microbes develop is an important biological question that is particularly relevant in modern agriculture and economy. Jean-Michel Ane seeks to understand the molecular mechanisms controlling the establishment of plant - microbe symbioses and the stimulation of plant growth by microbial signals. His goal is to maintain soil quality and sustainability while protecting the environment over the long term and reducing costs for biofuel production.
