The Jiménez-Gómez group (or Plant Adaptive Genomics and Genetics group) focuses on the application of modern genetic and bioinformatic techniques to study plant natural variation, evolution and domestication.<br\>
Our lab has moved from the Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics of the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Germany to 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.<br\><br\>

Postdoctoral and Master positions available at the lab in IJPB (INRA - Versailles). More details...
Nov 2015 - Our paper in Nature Genetics<br\> Domestication selected for deceleration of the circadian clock in cultivated tomato<br\>
Oct 2015 - ANR grant awarded!<br\> This is a good start for the lab. Our project, called STRESSNET, is featured in the [https://www6.inra.fr/saclay-plant-sciences/Services/Newsletter/Newsletter-3/ANR-2015 SPS newsletter.<br\> We are now looking for a postdoc to fill this position. More information here<br\>
Our group is formed by a mixture of bioinformaticians, molecular biologists and geneticists. This allows us to combine next generation sequencing technologies, molecular biology and classic genetic analyses to identify and characterize genes important for plant evolution. Our main working models are Arabidopsis thaliana and tomato (Solanum lycopersicum)<br\> Here you can learn more about our research
