Plant-Environment Interactions

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.

For a more detailed view of our research plans, please have a look at our Research Projects and Scientific Publications sections.
