Technological platforms

On one hand, TULIP labEx strengthen an existing platforms network and, on the other hand, we help building new platforms able to answer specific scientific needs.

Platforms directly supported by TULIP:

Toulouse Plant Microbe Phenotyping Platform

The Toulouse Plant Microbe Phenotyping (TPMP) platform is dedicated to automated high-throughput analysis phenotyping and controlled conditions on Arabidopsis model (Crucifer close to rapeseed), Medicago (model legume), Sunflower, Tomato as well as microorganisms that are associated with them. It includes equipment specifically designed and adapted to the scientific questions of our community. It is therefore unique in France and focuses on the themes of biotic interactions, one of the major research topics of Labex TULIP and FR AIB.

This platform allows to:

  • Manage environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, etc.) at different scales in order to mimic the environmental changes that are expected for the next decades
  • Measure the impact of changes in environmental conditions on plant performance and allow a detailed, high-throughput and quantitative assessment of the different phenotypic components and the physical and biological environmental characteristics.
  • Aquire mass phenotypic data, mainly from non-destructive experiments
  • Manage and process this massive data and generate new knowledge in the field of plant science and more particularly plant-microorganism interactions.
