Our lab studies the genetic and molecular bases for the adaptation of plants to their local environments. We mainly focus on the adaptation to stress (abiotic and biotic) and how this can be translated in an efficient molecular pharming (production of pharmaceutical compounds in plants) under the current challenges of climate change.

'''Disease resistance in plants ''' <br>
 
<font face="calibri" style="color:#000000" font size="4"> <br>
 
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. <br><br>

'''Natural variation of stress-induced metabolites''' <br>
 
<font face="calibri" style="color:#000000" font size="4"><br>
 
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. <br>

'''Molecular pharming''' <br>
 
<font face="calibri" style="color:#000000" font size="4"><br>
 
We produce proteins of pharmaceutical interest in plants and study ways to improve their productivity under different environments to adapt to the requirements of local climates.
