Dr. Bensmihen was hired at CNRS to lead a project on how symbiotic microbial signals stimulate root development. She uses approaches such as transcriptomics, natural variation (quantitative genetics) and reverse genetics.Her research interests encompass root phenotyping, crosstalks between symbiotic and hormonal signalling, root development in Medicago truncatula, and crosstalks between root cell layers (such as epidermis and cortex).
