Essaid Ait Barka

Dr Essaid Ait Barka Professor at URCA, he studies the interactions between plants and pathogenic/non-pathogenic microorganisms. His research is directed towards basic and applied aspects of using beneficial microorganisms as microbial inoculants to promote plant growth and provide biological resistance against plant biotic and abiotic stresses. His investigation aims to understand the molecular mechanisms of cross-talk between plant defence signal transduction pathways and the beneficial microorganisms. He has many partnerships with the private and public sectors and is co-inventor of two patents in the field of biocontrol. In addition, he supervised five Postdoc and five PhD students and published more than 36 publications. He is now supervising one postdoc and one PhD student.
