The Jiménez-Gómez group (or Plant Adaptive Genomics and Genetics group) combines bioinformatics, molecular biology and classic genetic analyses to identify and characterize genes important for plant natural variation and domestication. Our main working models are Arabidopsis thaliana and tomato (Solanum lycopersicum). Read more...


Our lab is part of the Institute Jean Pierre Bourgin in Versailles, France. IJPB is one of the largest plant science research centers in Europe, and a part of a joint research unit under the supervision of INRA and AgroParisTech. We have been very happily integrated into the Variation and Abiotic Stress Tolerance group, a great team with ample experience in natural variation in Arabidopsis thaliana. Until its closure in 2015, our group was part of the Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics of the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne, Germany.

Postdoctoral position
To work in genetics and genomics of stress responses in Arabidopsis

Master position
For a computational biologist



Dec 2016 - Again! We made it to Nature Genetics
Great collaboration with the Lippman Lab at CSHL! These guys rule! Variation in the flowering gene SELF PRUNING 5G promotes day-neutrality and early yield in tomato


April 2016 -"Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches" ... check!
Jose has obtained his "Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches". This means we are allowed to have PhD students. Apply when you are ready!!!


Feb 2016 - Spotlight article about our paper
Thanks to Ekaterina Shor and Rachel Green for this nice article in Trends in Plant Science: The Impact of Domestication on the Circadian Clock


Jan 2016 - News and Views on our paper
Thanks to Steve Kay and Marie Remigereau for writing a nice summary of our paper in Nature Genetics: Cultivated tomato clock runs slow
And to Jun Lyu for writing a Research Highlight in Nature Plants: Tomato domestication: Slowing down the clock


Nov 2015 - Our paper in Nature Genetics
Domestication selected for deceleration of the circadian clock in cultivated tomato

Oct 2015 - ANR grant awarded!
This is a good start for the lab. Our project, called STRESSNET, is featured in the SPS newsletter
We are now looking for a postdoc to fill this position. More information here
