Estimado visitante,

Bienvenido a la página web del Laboratorio de Genética Molecular de las interacciones Planta-Medio ambiente (R. Alcázar Lab) del Departamento de Biología, Sanidad y Medio Ambiente de la Universitat de Barcelona.

Nuestra investigación estudia la adaptación de las plantas a entornos locales. Analizamos la adaptación evolutiva de poblaciones de plantas a estreses abióticos y bióticos, que representan un reto para la supervivencia en el actual contexto de cambio climático. Derivado de nuestra investigación, formulamos nuevas estrategias para la protección frente al estrés.

Para más información, puede visitar nuestras secciones Research Projects y Scientific Publications, así como consultar un listado actualizado de nuestras actividades y publicaciones en la sección de anuncios (ver abajo). Para cualquier otra consulta, no dude en contactar con nosotros.

AREAS OF RESEARCH



1. Disease resistance in plants
We study the evolution of disease Resistance genes and other loci that condition plant immune activation in the model species Arabidopsis thaliana. We make use of natural populations of plants and pathogens to address molecular and evolutionary aspects of pathogen recognition in the wild. At the direct interface between plants and the environment, we study how temperature modulates some NB-LRR triggered plant immune responses.more about

2. Polyamines and abiotic stress tolerance
Polyamines, mainly putrescine, spermidine, spermine and thermospermine are small amines which accumulate in response to abiotic and biotic stress in many plant species. In collaboration with Prof. Tiburcio at UB, we investigate the implications of polyamines in plant stress protection from a genetics and molecular perspective. more about
