Genetics & Evolution of Plant-Environment Interactions

Our lab studies the adaptation of plants to local environments through a transversal approach involving molecular biology, population genetics, evolution and biochemistry. We focus on the natural adaptation of plants to the current challenges of climate change.

Evolution of the immune system receptor repertoire.
We're currently studying the evolution of NB-LRR immune-receptor genes in nature that condition defense against evolving pathogens and hybrid incompatibilities within species.

Naturally occurring variation for PA levels.
Polyamines are known protective compounds against abiotic and biotic stresses in plants. Our lab studies the genetic basis for the natural variation in polyamine levels in natural and domesticated populations.

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.
