TRANSBIO SUDOE aims at promoting interdisciplinary and interregional research in the field of health & life sciences.
TRANSBIO SUDOE can provide mobility support (transport & accommodation) for scientists interested in setting up collaborative research projects.

Below the procedure to launch a collaborative project :
  1. Create a TRANSBIO account => registration
  2. When approved, enter the intranet via the Enter TRANSBIO SUDOE bottom bar
  3. Select in partner access => Post collaborative project
For all questions or further help, contact your regional local WP2 mini-cluster responsible..

Added value of the cooperation : the cooperation will bring together research teams from two institutions devoted to the use of biotechnology using the new DNA editing technologies (TALENs and CRISPR). The cooperation aims to prepare for a European project proposal.

Summary of the proposal : The aim of this cooperation is to design new research project proposals to develop strategies based in the ability to edit eucariotic DNA using nucleases to improve plant tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses, in particular those arising from the climatic changes said to be especially pronounced in the Mediterranean areas. These proposals will explore the different possibilities of using TALENS and CRISPR to knockout specific genes aiming to understand their function, to target specific locations of the genomes to land a gene controlling a specific tolerant characteristic or to substitute alleles by allelic variants increasing tolerances.

The project proposals to be develop will take in particular account the needs of breeding and seed companies.
