Genetics of Plant-Environment Interactions
Short CV Rubén Alcázar Here




Starting soon. Plants are constantly exposed to environmental challenges which can restrict their growth, reproduction, colonization of new areas and can even drive the extinction of certain genotypes. Under a scenario of climate change, we need to know how variation in temperature regimes will impact plant species evolution. Evidences are found that plants can also naturally adapt to their local environments. But this process often takes place in longer time scales than the fast-evolving climate change. There's a need to understand evolution of resistance and how this is modulated by the environment. My lab is undertaking a research approach that seeks for naturally existing genetic variation which confers biotic and abiotic stress resistance phenotypes, and how these interact with the environment. For this, we combine the genetics of natural variation, population genetic studies and functional molecular biology in the model species A.thaliana as first step to understand the natural evolution of stress tolerance driven by environmental interactions.

El nostre és un laboratori interessat en l'estudi de les bases genètiques de l'estrés abiòtic i biòtic en plantes, emprant organismes model com Arabidopsis thaliana i la variabilitat genètica natural ja existent en poblacions silvestres. Els detalls de la nostra recerca i projectes en curs es podran consultar properament en l'apartat "Research" i "Publications".
