'''''Dear visitor,'''''<br>

<br> Welcome to the webpage of the '''Molecular Genetics of Plant-Environment Interactions (Alcazar Lab)''' at the Department of Biology, Healthcare & Environment of the University of Barcelona. <br><br>
 +
We're a recently created research group that investigates the '''adaptation of plants to local environments'''. We focus on the evolutionary adaptation of plant populations to '''abiotic and biotic stresses''', which are major challenges for plant survival under the current climate change predictions. Derived from our research, we investigate ways for improving stress protection.<br>

We're interested in genetics of natural variation, population genetics and molecular biology. We want to know how climate change is shaping plant's resistance and tolerance traits under a combined multidisciplinary approach. Our lab undertakes a research approach that looks for the genetic and molecular basis of naturally occurring quantitative variation in biotic and abiotic stress responses, and how these interact with the environment (genotype-by-environment interactions). This multidisciplinary approach will allow a better understanding of the natural evolution of stress pathways in plants and efficient know-how transfer to practical applications.<br>

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.[http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21963982 more about]<br>

Dear visitor,

Welcome to the webpage of the Molecular Genetics of Plant-Environment Interactions (Alcazar Lab) at the Department of Biology, Healthcare & Environment of the University of Barcelona.

We're a recently created research group that investigates the adaptation of plants to local environments. We focus on the evolutionary adaptation of plant populations to abiotic and biotic stresses, which are major challenges for plant survival under the current climate change predictions. Derived from our research, we investigate ways for improving stress protection.

For a more detailed view of our research, please have a look at our Research Projects and Scientific Publications sections. You can follow an updated list of our activities and publications in the NEWS section below. For any other enquires, do not hesitate to contact us directly.
