[September, 4 2018] New review from Julien Gronnier, Véronique Germain and Sebastien Mongrand with our colleagues from Dijon in Trends in Plant Science. If you want to know more about the multiscale and multicomponent heterogeneity of the plant plasma membrane, it’s a must read : "Divide and Rule : Plant Plasma Membrane Organization".

ISPL congres

[July 8-13, 2018] LBM’s members -Nicolas Esnay, Jérome Joubes, Sébastien Mongrand and Frederic Domergue- went to the last ISPL in Yokohama, Japan. They all gave an oral presentations. That was a good opportunity to meet our friends and colleagues Fred Beaudoin from Rothamsted and Eric Marechal from Grenoble, and to do networking.
The next ISPL 2020 will be in Grenoble FRANCE ! Yes !


It is with great sadness that the LBM announces the passing of Vincent Arondel after a long illness, on Saturday, June 23, 2018, at the age of 55 years.
Vincent was a great scientist interested for decades on plant lipids. He identified the first desaturase FAD3 by map‐based cloning, isolated the first bacterial PE methyl transferase and cloned an important lipase in palm fruit.
He joined the LBM in 2007 where he did seminal works on the comparison of oil and data palm metabolism.
Vincent will be forever remembered by his colleagues, students and dear friends.


[ April 25, 2018] Jérôme Joubès and Frédéric Domergue from the surface lipids team contributed to a chapter entitled "Biosynthesis of the plant cuticle" in the handbook of hydrocabon and lipid microbiology, in which they present the molecular and biochemical characterization of the main enzymes catalyzing the major steps in cuticular compound biosynthesis in plants (DOI : 10.1007/978-3-319-54529-5_8-1).
