BRC4Env, Biological Resource Centres for the Environment of AgroBRC-RARe

BRC4Env, the network of Biological Resource Centres for the Environmentof of AgroBRC-RARe, aims at storing and providing environmental resources (biological material and associated data), in a secure way and an optimal traceability. BRC4Env supports both fundamental and applied research based on agro-environmental bioresources. These biological and/or genomic resources are sampled from soils, sediments, waters, agricultural ecosystems, and preserved in organized collections. They include microorganisms, as well as animal and plant resources, whose management or spreading do not directly depend from human intervention. BRC4Env provides these resources available for researchers from academia, but also industry and forces of civil society, in the field of agroecology.

These resources collected in the environment are used to:

  • describe, document and characterize the various environmental components,
  • develop processes for the biocontrol of crop pests
  • understand the interactions taking place between various types of hosts and pathogens.

Le réseau de Centres de Ressources Biologiques agro-environnementales de l'Infrastructure AgroBRC-RARe, BRC4Env, conserve et distribue des ressources biologiques (matériel biologique et données associées), de manière sécurisée et avec une traçabilité optimale. BRC4Env soutient la recherche fondamentale et appliquée concernée par les bioressources agro-environnementales. Ces ressources biologiques et/ou génomiques sont échantillonnées à partir de sols, de sédiments, d'eaux, d'écosystèmes agricoles, et conservées dans des collections organisées. Elles concernent des microorganismes, ainsi que les ressources animales et végétales dont la gestion ou la propagation ne dépendent pas directement d'une intervention humaine. BRC4Env rend ces ressources disponibles pour les chercheurs du monde académique, mais aussi de l'industrie et de la société civile.
