The Plant Genome and Development Laboratory

Laboratory history

lgdp perpignan

The LGDP was created by Professor Yves Guitton in 1966 following the re-opening of the “Université de Perpignan Via Domitia” (UPVD). The Laboratory was associated to CNRS in 1970 and this association has been maintained without discontinuity since then. Professor Paul Penon succeeded to Yves Guitton as director in 1977, followed by Michel Delseny from 1984 to 2006. It was under his direction that the LGDP became a nationally and internationally recognized unit and a leading laboratory in the field of Arabidopsis genomics. Manuel Echeverria succeeded to Michel Delseny in 2007, followed in September 2010 by Jean-Marc Deragon (until December 31th, 2019) and Olivier Panaud (from January 1st, 2020).
