BIOLOGIE FONCTIONNELLE, INSECTES ET INTERACTIONS l'Unite BF2i

The UMR203 BF2I (Biologie Fonctionnelle Insectes et Interactions) Laboratory is a joined research unit between the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon (INSA Lyon) and Plant Health and the Environment (SPE) Division of the Institut National de Recherche pour l'Agriculture, l'Alimentation et l'Environnement (INRAE), The laboratory is located on the LyonTech - La Doua Campus of the University of Lyon (Lyon/Villeurbanne, France) and it is hosted within the Department of BioSciences at INSA de Lyon.
The laboratory research projects are centered on the study of complex biological interactions of insect pests with their associated intracellular symbiotic bacteria and host plants. The research activities focused on symbiosis are led by two research teams: «Symbiosis and Immune Signaling» (SymSIm) and «Functional Genomics of Trophic Interactions in Symbiosis» (SymT). The laboratory staff is actively involved in research training of Master and PhD students, as well as, in course teaching at the INSA de Lyon. [see: laboratory organizational chart].

* Note: UMR is acronym for Unité Mixte de Recherche. This is the French terminology for a joint research laboratory between two or more research institutes.
