Genetics & Evolution of Plant-Environment Interactions

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) exploring the natural variation present in wild populations.



Evolution of NB-LRR genes in nature, disease resistance and incompatibility

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. This research is complemented by the study of the temperature effects on NB-LRR mediated defense triggering.
