Program factsheet
The international Master “Plant Biology and Biotechnology”
program provides students with a modern research-based
training in the fields of Plant Science and Biotechnology.
Students acquire general knowledge in plant molecular
biology, genetics, plant development and physiology, and
systems biology. Skills are developed within the various
fields of Plant Biotechnology including transgenic plant
production, use and policy, extraction of molecules of
interest, conventional and advanced plant breeding and the
use of system biology to model crop production.
The wide partner network provides students with a range
of complementary expertise and means that specific
comptencies may be developed within the chosen field of
biotechnology for agriculture improvement.
The Master laboratory practice is completed in any of the
partner laboratories. Students may also however carry out
their practice is one of the private companies involved in
the Master program.

Strengths
During their studies, students will:
›› Acquire scientific knowledge in various fields of Plant
Biology and Biotechnology.
›› Receive a modern research-based training.
›› Develop conceptual understanding of the challenges of
modern agricultural practices in a context of environmental
constraints and increasing demand.
›› Develop conceptual understanding of the benefits and
limits of modern biotechnology.
›› Acquire the skills to develop action planning processes for
bioscience.
›› Acquire skills and practice within an English-speaking
environment as well as in other languages of the consortium.
›› Develop the necessary skills to work in international teams
and networks.
›› Acquire competencies for knowledge transfer to students
and collaborators.
›› Develop competencies to create, finance and manage a new
start-up.
›› Acquire an understanding of today’s industrial and
economic environment in Biotech sector.
Scientific English (3 ECTS)
›› Students will reinforce and develop the reading, writing,
listening and speaking skills relevant to a biological science
research context.
›› Students will acquire knowledge of the linguistic and
discursive features of both written and spoken scientific
English.
›› Structure and rhetoric of the research article, writing up an
abstract. Oral scientific presentation – students prepare a
mini-symposium on the topic related to their future work
placement (and thus complete relevant bibliographical and
reading research in preparation).
›› Students are evaluated on their communication skills
in English and also on their ability to manage complex
scientific concepts in English.
Bibliographic review
›› Students must write a review on a research topic related to
the internship they will perform in Semester 2.
Genetic, Epigenetic and breeding (3 ECTS)
›› Genetic organization of complex traits (genetic linkage, QTL
detection, analysis of traits markers linkage), population
genetic, phylogeny and phylogenetic, evolution and
molecular evolution in plants, epigenetic and application to
plant breeding.
Plant development (3 ECTS)
›› Genetic regulation of Root and Stem apical Meristem
functioning, epigenetic regulations of plant development
and reproduction, parental imprinting, plant hormones,
fruit and seed development, sex determination in plants,
cellular mechanisms involved in plant organ growth and
development.
Metabolism and cellular compartmentation (3 ECTS)
›› Metabolism and cell compartmentation: morphodynamic
organization of the plant secretory pathway, lipid and
protein machineries; membrane transporters in plants and
the related methods of study; lipid signaling in plant cells;
formation and dynamics of membrane domains; regulation
of metabolism and gene expression by sugars in plants.
Nature and importance of futile cycles in plants.
Biotechonology (3 ECTS)
›› In vitro culture and applications, plant transformation
and applications to crop plants, GMO legislation and
traceability, metabolic engineering, GMO and production
of antibodies and of molecules of high health value, GMO in
the food industry, fungi biotechnology.
Plant pathogen interactions (3 ECTS)
›› Plant-Mollicutes interactions, plant-virus interactions:
analysis of plant and virus factors necessary for virus
cycle, viroids; RNA interference, plant defence mechanisms
against pathogens (fungi, bacteria and, virus), breeding
of plants resistant to pathogens, biodiversity of plant
pathogens, epidemiology of plant pathogen interactions
and impact on crop production.
Semester 2
Laboratory Practice (6 months / 30 ECTS)
