Plant-Environment Interactions

Our lab studies 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 stress (abiotic and biotic). Derived from our basic research, we investigate ways for improving stress protection.



Current projects

Disease resistance in plants

We're currently studying the evolution of NB-LRR immune-receptor genes and other interacting loci that condition defense against evolving pathogens and how this derives in immune-related hybrid incompatibility, an important obstacle in plant breeding. We address these questions using molecular biology, population genetics and biochemical approaches. 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.


Natural variation of stress-induced metabolites

We study the genetic bases for the naturally occurring variation of some stress metabolites involved in resistance traits to abiotic and biotic stresses in collaboration with different laboratories. We identify natural compounds which protect plants from stress. Through molecular approaches we improve the resistance of plants to different stresses.
