Dr. Jean-Michel Ané is a Professor in the departments of Bacteriology and Agronomy at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. His primary research interest is understanding the molecular mechanisms allowing efficient symbiotic associations between plants and microbes and applying this knowledge to maximize the benefits of such associations in agriculture.
His specific goals are to
(1) understand the genetic and molecular mechanisms allowing the establishment of mycorrhizal and nitrogen-fixing associations across land plants,
(2) study the evolution of these mechanisms to identify critical innovations that enabled the development of these associations, and
(3) use this knowledge to engineer more efficient associations between crops and microbes to improve the sustainability of our agriculture for food, feed, and biofuel production.
