Genetics & Evolution of Plant-Environment Interactions

Our lab studies the genetic and molecular bases for the adaptation of plants to their local environments. We're currently investigating plant-pathogen coevolution and the effect of temperature in this interaction.
Evolution of NB-LRR genes and pathogens
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 biochemistry, we study plant-pathogen coevolution in wild Arabidopsis populations.
