CV  

The main goal of the lab is to study the molecular response of crop plants to stress, in order to promote the development of resistant crop varieties. Specifically, we aim at elucidating the molecular factors that underlie response to heat stress in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), an important crop in which high growth temperatures lead to considerable yield loss.
We are interested in the involvement of epigenetic factors (i.e. DNA 5`-cytosine methylation, histone tail modifications and transposable elements) in stress responses and their contribution of to phenotypic variation and heritability. We use innovative molecular tools for genetic and epigenetic editing to address these intriguing questions.

We are currently looking for enthusiastic students and stuff to join us!

The lab's web site will soon become available with more details.
