Small but strong!

Equipped with high-resolution mass spectrometry instruments since 2017, the IBMP’s Plant Imaging Mass Spectrometry platform was able to perform untargeted analyzes for the first time. The study published on September 4, 2018 in Scientific Reports compared the metabolome of a semi-dwarf barley mutant to its wild reference. The differences, validated statistically, reveal in the mutant the induction of a metabolic profile usually associated with the resistance to pathogens.
