Brassica 2018 a pour objectif de faire le point sur les avancées dans les domaines de la génétique (épigénétique, édition de génomes, sélection génomique...), de l’organisation et de l’évolution des génomes, de la compréhension des mécanismes contrôlant des caractères complexes (réponse des plantes aux contraintes abiotiques et biotiques, qualité des produits). Un focus sera fait sur des thématiques innovantes telles que l’étude des interactions plante × insectes, des interactions entre plusieurs stress (stress abiotiques × biotiques) ou entre plusieurs organismes (plantes - organismes pathogènes - ravageurs et/ou micro-organismes bénéfiques) permettant le développement de variétés adaptées et adaptables à des environnements fluctuants.
