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 modulation of ''NB-LRR'' signaling by temperature. <br><br>

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.



Current projects

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

We're currently studying the evolution of NB-LRR immune-receptor genes and other interacting loci that condition defense against evolving pathogens and how this derives in immune-related hybrid incompatibility. We address these questions using molecular biology, population genetics and biochemical approaches in wild Arabidopsis and pathogen populations. This research is complemented by the study of the modulation of NB-LRR signaling by temperature.


Natural variation of stress-induced metabolites

We study the genetic bases for the naturally occurring variation of some stress metabolites involved in resistance traits to abiotic and biotic stresses in collaboration with different laboratories.


Our research is supported by:

  • The Ramón y Cajal Programe (Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, Spain)
  • Marie Curie Career Integration Grant (DISEASENVIRON) 2012-2016
