Translational Biology of the Grain Development in Gasses

According to the recently published evolutionary scenario, the grass genomes have been duplicated at least once in the course of their paleohistory. Modern diploid grasses are neo and/or paleopolyploid. The ongoing genome diploidization process, in reducing duplicated gene redundancy, occurs at the gene level through both structural and expression/functional modifications, leading to the so-called sub-genome dominance. The current TransGRAIN proposal aims at investigating the expressional and epigenetic basis of this sub-genome dominance phenomenon during the grain development in rice/maize/sorghum/wheat and Brachypodium. Despite fundamental insight gained from the TransGRAIN project into sub-genome

Biography & research interests

Moaine El Baidouri is a post-doctoral researcher in Jerome Salse lab in Clermont Ferrand (France). He received his B.S degree (Biological science) from University of Picardie Jules Verne in Amiens (France), his M.S (Biology and Evolution) and his PhD (Genome Evolution) from University of Perpignan Via Domitia in Perpignan (France) followed by a post-doctoral position in Scott jackson lab at the University of Georgia (USA).His primary research interest is the understanding of genetic and epigenetic forces that drive genome dynamics and evolution in plants.
