We're currently studying the evolution of NB-LRR immune-receptor genes in nature that condition defense against evolving pathogens and how this derives in immune-driven reproductive isolation barriers within species (hybrid incompatibilities). We're particularly studying the evolution of the RPP1-like cluster, which is involved in recognition of the naturally occurring ''Arabidopsis thaliana'' pathogen ''Hyaloperonospora arabidopsidis'' and frequently involved in hybrid incompatibility. Through a combined research involving molecular biology,  population genetics and biochemical approaches, we study plant-pathogen coevolution in wild Arabidopsis populations and how this is translated into the genetic composition of NB-LRR genes in local populations. <br><br>

We study the evolution of ''Resistance'' genes and interacting loci that condition '''immune-related hybrid incompatibility''' in natural ''Arabidopsis thaliana'' populations.

Genetics of Plant-Environment Interactions

We study the genetic and molecular bases for the adaptation of plants to their local environments. We mainly focus on the evolutionary adaptation of plant populations to abiotic and biotic stresses, which are major threats for plant survival. Derived from our basic research, we investigate ways for improving stress protection.


CURRENT AREAS OF RESEARCH



1. Immune-related hybrid incompatibility in plants

We study the evolution of Resistance genes and interacting loci that condition immune-related hybrid incompatibility in natural Arabidopsis thaliana populations. 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.


2. Natural variation of stress-induced metabolites


In collaboration with the lab of Prof. A.F. Tiburcio at the same department, we study the genetic bases for the naturally occurring variation of stress protective metabolites that condition resistance traits in plants.
