IJPB - HAL Collection

The Institute Jean-Pierre Bourgin for Plant Sciences (IJPB) is a very large research unit (TGU) occupying 12,000 m² of buildings on the INRAE site in Versailles, and is affiliated to both INRAE and AgroParisTech.

The IJPB carries out multidisciplinary research on plants with the aim of developing concepts and tools that extend our fundamental knowledge about plant biology and agronomy towards innovative solutions for complex scientific and social challenges. The ambitions of the IJPB fall within three thematic axes:

1. advancing the knowledge of basic plant functions and interactions,

2. designing smart crops for sustainable agriculture in the face of climate change,

3. developing novel plant-based products for food and non-food uses.

To achieve these goals, the IJPB mobilizes a unique set of resources and expertise in biology, chemistry, and mathematics in France. The biological models studied are diverse and include several microbial models in addition to plants. In addition, the IJPB has several platforms dedicated to multi-scale plant phenotyping that are grouped within IBISA labelled Plant Observatory. Finally, the IJPB remit involves teaching within the Université Paris-Saclay and the training of AgroParisTech engineers.
