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.
