M2 students attend the DuPont-Pioneer Symposium held in AgroParisTech in Paris

M2 students attend the DuPont-Pioneer Symposium held in AgroParisTech in Paris

 On 26th September 2017, M2 students from Master Bordeaux Biology, Agrosciences, track Plant Breeding and Genetics had the great privilege to attend the DuPont-Pioneer Symposium held in AgroParisTech in Paris on

The symposium welcomed the best national and international researchers in their field trying to underline how plant breeding can make the best use of genetic diversity. Because no improvement can be achieved without existing genetic variation, genetic diversity is the cornerstone of plant breeding.
Examples were numerous from maize to tomato. The link between plant and animal genetics was presented. The most recent selection methods detailed (QTL, GWAs, GS...) and the link with other biotechnologies made .
It was a very rich and great day

Five students: ready to conquer Japan

Five students: ready to conquer Japan

We are five students enrolled at the University of Bordeaux. However, our educational backgrounds are very different: we are absolutely complementary. To enforce this bond and to strengthen our relationship with Japanese and Taiwanese students, we created an association: BAMJID.
This master is an opportunity to prepare for working in an international laboratory. The philosophy underlying this training ("food is medicine") suggests that we will be given a holistic view of public health and agronomic issues. This seems essential, in the light of the challenges encountered in these areas.
The pedagogy of the Master’s Degree seems truly innovative. It pushes us to invest in projects, to remain active in the construction of our professional career.
Beyond this appealing degree, the country where it takes place is a dream-like destination for many French people. Japan has an extraordinary cultural wealth: this is a great way to open our minds to new ideas.
We all share a desire to discover what a student’s life looks like across the world. Not anyone can collaborate with people from around the world so early in life. It’s a magnificent opportunity that has only come to us thanks to our professors. We offer our heartfelt thanks for all the time they spent in this project!

Thomas: ready to conquer Chile

Thomas: ready to conquer Chile

 Thomas Dussarrat
Former master student at Bordeaux University 2016/2017.

My name is Thomas Dussarrat, I’m 22 years old. I got my Bachelors in Biology (Molecular and Cell Biology and Physiology) from Bordeaux University and I joined the 2BAS Master this year. During my university training, I had the opportunity to do three internships: Green Campus in Villenave d’Ornon, Maisadour Semences in Haut-Mauco and LIPM in Toulouse. I chose this biology program for the main purpose of learning and filling my curiosity. But three years later, thanks to Bordeaux University, its professors and my internships, I’m glad to see that this curiosity has increased tenfold. That is why I am now convinced of my path and excited to pursue my learning in Chile.  
The 2BAS Master showed us that diversity and exchange of knowledge are the two main drivers of research and this is what I’m looking for in the PUC program. In fact, I believe strongly that this training will bring me a personal enrichment, which will form the background to my professional evolution. Also, this is an opportunity to obtain a double degree (Santiago-Bordeaux) that can be very interesting even if I’m convinced that, as Albert Schweitzer said, «Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful ».
Who can say no to a pass for a professional and cultural experience in a sumptuous country?
Thomas.
