We study the genetic and molecular bases for the '''adaptation of plants to their local environments'''. We mainly focus on the evolutionary adaptation of plant populations to '''abiotic and biotic stresses''', which are major threats for plant survival. Derived from our basic research, we investigate ways for improving stress protection.<br>

We're interested in genetics. We want to know how climate change is shaping plant's evolution on resistance traits. My lab undertakes a research approach that looks for naturally existing genetic variation which confers biotic and abiotic stress resistance phenotypes, and how these interact with the environment. We combine the genetics of natural variation, population genetic studies and functional molecular biology to understand the natural evolution of stress tolerance driven by environmental interactions.<br>

Genetics of Plant-Environment Interactions

We study the genetic and molecular bases for the adaptation of plants to their local environments. We mainly focus on the evolutionary adaptation of plant populations to abiotic and biotic stresses, which are major threats for plant survival. Derived from our basic research, we investigate ways for improving stress protection.


CURRENT AREAS OF RESEARCH



1. Immune-related hybrid incompatibility in plants

We study the evolution of Resistance genes and interacting loci that condition immune-related hybrid incompatibility in natural Arabidopsis thaliana populations. This research is complemented by the study of the modulation of NB-LRR signaling by temperature which is important under the current climate change predictions.


2. Natural variation of stress-induced metabolites


In collaboration with the lab of Prof. A.F.Tiburcio at the same department, we study the genetic bases for the naturally occurring variation of stress protective metabolites that condition resistance traits in plants.


Rubén Alcázar is Ramón y Cajal Researcher at the Department of Natural Products, Plant Biology and Soil Science of the University of Barcelona.
