We're interested in genetics of natural variation, population genetics and molecular biology. We want to know how climate change is shaping plant's resistance and tolerance traits under a combined multidisciplinary approach. Our lab undertakes a research approach that looks for the genetic and molecular basis of naturally occurring quantitative variation in biotic and abiotic stress responses, and how these interact with the environment (genotype-by-environment interactions). This multidisciplinary approach will allow a better understanding of the natural evolution of stress pathways in plants and efficient know-how transfer to practical applications.<br>

This article by '''Barboza et al.''' determines the evolutionary basis of the GA5 locus,
 
-
encoding one of the last enzymes of the gibberellic acid biosynthesis pathway, and
 
-
involved in semi-dwarf phenotypes that naturally segregate in ''A.thaliana'' populations.
 
-
Interestingly, the same locus has been targeted by crop breeding for the isolation
 
-
of the so-called green revolution alleles in rice and barley.
 
-
 
-
This study demonstrates that the use of ''A.thaliana'' natural variation enables
 
-
the identification of genes and alleles which can be successful for plant breeding.

Genetics & Evolution of Plant-Environment Interactions



Current activities

Scientific interests. We're interested in genetics of natural variation, population genetics and molecular biology. We're currently studying immune-receptor gene variation and the effect of temperature on modulation of defense in frame of the project DISEASENVIRON (Career Integration Grant, Marie-Curie Actions, EU).

Applied research. Our lab collaborates with the group of Prof. A.F. Tiburcio to study polyamine homeostasis in plants and its practical applications for inducing stress tolerance against abiotic stresses.

Dissemination of Knowledge. For a more detailed view of our research, have a look at our Research Projects and Scientific Publications sections. For general public information have a look at +info.
