Delphine Capela

Research director

SYMEVOL team

RESEARCH SUBJECTS

During her PhD, Delphine contributed to the sequencing and expert annotation of the first rhizobium genome, the model rhizobium Sinorhizobium meliloti. When she joined the CNRS in the group of Jacques Batut’s in 2002 she pursued the work on the postgenomics of S. meliloti in deciphering the transcriptome of S. meliloti during the symbiotic process and in free living conditions. Microarray was at that time the most powerful tool to study microbial transcriptomes. In 2008, Delphine switched to the experimental evolution project which aims at converting a non-symbiotic bacterium into a legume symbiont. In this project, she is managing the production of evolved populations and clones and is seeking for adaptive mutations responsible for the improvement of the symbiotic properties of experimentally evolved strains.

Research engineer

RESEARCH SUBJECTS

Anne-Claire has studied signalisation (reactive oxygen species production and protein kinases) in plants in response to abiotic stress during her PhD at the ISV (CNRS, Gif-sur-Yvette, France) and during her post-doc at the MPIZ (Koeln, Germany). She analyzed the heavy metal tolerance during two post-docs at the Leibniz-IPB (Halle/Saale, Germany) and at CEA Cadarache (France). She joined the LIPM in 2007 to contribute to the characterization of the type III effectors from Ralstonia solanacearum in the team of Stéphane Genin. From 2015 to 2020, she worked in the team of Claude Bruand to participate in the elucidation of the roles of nitric oxide (NO) in the Medicago truncatula-Sinorhizobium meliloti symbiotic interaction. More specifically, she studied the protein post-translational modifications induced by NO. Since 2020, Anne-Claire joined the team of Delphine Capela to analyze transcriptomic modifications in the Mimosa pudica legume in response to the progressive adaptation of experimentally evolved symbionts.

She joined LIPM in 2016 to work on the Autoregulation of Root Infection (AOI) project, in the S. meliloti-Medicago symbiosis for the identification and characterization of molecular targets of the periplasmic protein involved in the AOI and whose function is unknown. Since 2020, Saïda has been involved in the experimental rhizobia evolution project. She is participating to the realization of the evolution experiment as well as the reconstruction of mutations that occurred in the experiment and the phenotyping of reconstructed mutant on plants.
