Maloof Lab:Jose M. Jimenez-Gomez
Jose M Jimenez-Gomez, PhD.
I am currently involved in the study of the changes that are produced in plants as a response to different light environments.
The degree of responsiveness of each plant to each light condition has an adaptive value and it's related to the plant's origin. My research focuses in the molecular evolution of these adaptive mechanisms. To study this, I analyze the vast variation in these responses existing in nature, as well as the effect that domestication has in the way that plants perceive and respond to light.
