Benvolgut visitant,

Us donem la benvinguda a la pàgina web del Laboratori de Genètica Molecular de les Interaccions Planta-Medi ambient (R. Alcázar) al Departament de Biologia, Sanitat i Medi Ambient de la Universitat de Barcelona.

En la nostra recerca, investiguem l'adaptació de les plantes als entorns locals. Estudiem l'adaptació evolutiva de poblacions de plantes a estressos biòtics i abiòtics, que representen reptes per a la supervivència derivats del canvi climàtic. Fruit de la nostra investigació, establim noves estratègies per a la protecció contra l'estrès.

Per a aprofundir una mica més sobre la nostra investigació, us convidem a consultar les nostres seccions de projectes d'investigació i publicacions científiques. També podeu seguir una llista actualitzada de les nostres activitats i articles de divulgació a la secció de notícies (veure abaix). Per a qualsevol altra consulta, no dubteu en posar-vos en contacte amb nosaltres.

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
