Functional genomics of abiotic stress in plants

Our research group is dedicated to unraveling the molecular intricacies of how plants perceive and respond to environmental stressors. Our primary focus is elucidating the molecular mechanisms that trigger root responses to nutrient and water deficiencies. Through functional genomics, we aim to characterize the adaptive traits of plant species thriving in extreme environments, providing insights into their resilience and survival strategies.
