What are we interested in?

Plants are constantly exposed to environmental challenges which can restrict their growth, reproduction, colonization of new areas and can even drive the extinction of certain genotypes. Under a scenario of climate change, we need to know how variation in temperature regimes will impact plant evolution.

Evidences are found that plants can also naturally adapt to their local environments. But this process often takes place in longer time scales than the fast-evolving climate change. There's a need to understand evolution of resistance and how this is modulated by the environment.

My lab will undertake a research approach that looks for naturally existing genetic variation which confers biotic and abiotic stress resistance phenotypes, and how these interact with the environment. For this, we will combine the genetics of natural variation, population genetic studies and functional molecular biology in model plant species and crops to understand the natural evolution of stress tolerance driven by environmental interactions.

For a more detailed view of our research plans, please have a look at our 'Research' and Publications sections.

El nostre és un laboratori interessat en l'estudi de les bases genètiques de l'estrés abiòtic i biòtic en plantes, emprant organismes model i espècies d'interés agronòmic, investiguem la variabilitat genètica natural ja existent en poblacions silvestres. Els detalls de la nostra recerca i projectes en curs es podran consultar properament en l'apartat "Research" i "Publications".

Nuestro laboratorio tiene como principal línea de investigación el estudio de las bases genéticas del estrés abiótico y biótico. Para ello estudiamos la variabilidad genética natural ya existente en poblaciones naturales de especies modelo y de interés agronómico. Los detalles de nuestra investigación y proyectos en curso se podrán consultar próximamente en las secciones "Research" y "Publications".
