Genetics & Evolution of Plant-Environment Interactions

Our lab studies the adaptation of plants to local environments through a transversal approach involving molecular biology, population genetics, evolution and biochemistry. We focus on the natural adaptation of plants to the current challenges of climate change.

Evolution of the immune system receptor repertoire.
We're currently studying the evolution of NB-LRR immune-receptor genes in nature that condition defense against evolving pathogens and immune-related hybrid incompatibilities in Arabidopsis thaliana. We're particularly studying the evolution of a cluster of NB-LRR genes involved in recognition of the naturally occurring Arabidopsis thaliana pathogen Hyaloperonospora arabidopsidis from a molecular, biochemical and population genetics perspective. We're making use of local populations of plants and pathogens to understand plant-pathogen coevolution shaped by adaptation to local environments.
