* ''' Polyamines in stress tolerance.''' Polyamines are small aliphatic compounds present in all living organisms. Polyamine biosynthesis is an evolutionary conserved pathway under an apparent purifying selection. Even though their essential role in stress tolerance is genetically demonstrated, molecular and signalling mechanisms underlying cell protection are relatively obscure. I am interested in gaining insight into the role of polyamines in stress tolerance for their practical direct application in crop breeding and study in depth the evolutionary history of polyamine biosynthesis.
