Génomique comparative et fonctionnelle de familles de gènes liés au métabolisme secondaire de la vigne (Vitis vinifera) et de ses proches parents

Abstract : Grapevine (Vitis vinifera) has a particularly rich secondary metabolism, giving rise to a wide range of molecules, some of which are involved in defences against pathogens and others in the great diversity of aromas that make wines famous. Analysis of grapevine reference genome has shown a remarkable expansion of certain families of genes linked to secondary metabolism in comparison with the other plants. In this work, I have analysed gene families coding for cytochromes P450, some of them being involved in the production of aromas, genes coding for stilbene synthases (STS), endo-β-1,3-glucanases and NBS type resistance genes involved in grapevine defences. My thesis intends to propose hypothesis to explain the structural organisation of these families and therefore better understand why some of these families are amplified in the grapevine genome. Bioinformatic approaches have been used to study these different genes families. The cytochromes P450 and R genes of NBS type were manually annotated to improve the knowledge of these families of genes. The expression of endo-β-1,3-glucanases, STS and cytochromes P450 genes has been quantified using a large-scale transcriptomic approach. To this purpose, a tool has been developed during this thesis to estimate the level of genes expression from RNA- Seq data available in public databases. In the meantime, DNA resequencing data from 56 cultivars and grapevine species have been analysed to identify structural variations of CNV types within the genes with a NBS domain and the STS genes. These works showed that the amplification of the gene families of interest was not specific to the reference genome but occurred at the scale of the Vitis genus, but also to highlighted structural variations in different genomes. Regarding the STS genes, blocks of duplication and more conserved and expressed genes were identified. For the genes with NBS domain, a clustered organisation has been highlighted with some clusters varying more than others in the studied genotypes. These works contribute to a better knowledge of gene families for efficient and durable defence against pathogens and optimal aromas synthesis in grapevine. This knowledge will benefit to breeding programs currently in progress at INRA Colmar.
