tomaTE

Contribution of transposable elements (TEs) to tomato domestication and improvement

AAP Générique 2017 / 2017 - 2021

Coordinated by Vincent Colot (IBENS), tomaTE's aim is to characterise the ‘mobilome’ in cultivated tomatoes, its primitive forms S. lycopersicum var. cerasiforme, and its closest wild relative S. pimpinellifolium and to study the role of transposable elements (TE) in the variation of genic expression among accessions.
