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.
