The activities of the department « Plant cell wall, function and utilization » (with the french abbreviation PAVE) are focused on the synthesis and utilization of the plant cell wall. Research groups of the department work on biological models as Arabidopsis thaliana and Brachypodium distachyon, as well as maize. In addition to  genetics and functional genomics approaches that are shared with the other departments of the Institute, the PAVE research groups use a broad variety of other approaches:  quantitative live cell microscopy, biochemistry, analytical and synthetic chemistry, biophysics, biomimetic systems and modeling. The applied objectives of PAVE are the improvement of non-food usage properties of crop plants. This includes improving plant biomass composition for its utilization as renewable source of energy field, fibers and synthons for green chemistry.
