    Role auxin homeostasis in flower organ development and function
    The research will elucidate the role of auxin homeostasis in flower organ development and function. To address these goals we will use the following methodologies: transcriptomic analysis using RNASeq and other molecular and genomic approaches, genome editing methods (Crisper CAS9), analytical methods for purification and quantification of plant hormone and their metabolites. The above will conducted during different developmental stages and under diverse environmental condition in both WT and mutant plants.

    Fruit's trees response to irrigation and fertilization and soil degradation
    Study of the response of intensively cultivated fruit trees (olive, table grapes and jojoba) to different levels of irrigation and fertilization. We offer a multidisciplinary approach including monitoring of soil properties, physiological responses, productivity, yield and product quality. This comprehensive approach will promote optimization of fertilizer and irrigation regimes while minimizing costs, reducing environmental hazards, and maximizing productivity and product quality.

    Developing a nutritional supplement based on Gracilaria conferta alga
    This project is aimed at developing the knowledge required for commercial use of Gracilaria alga and its extractions as food supplements, food products and cosmetics for promoting health. This knowledge includes a comprehensive chemical profiling of its composition, as well as understanding its biological activities (done by our colleagues).

    Big data for (precision and smart) irrigation decision making
    Handling and processing spatial-temporal data to be used in agricultural decision support systems for a series of projects regarding precise and smart irrigation. Spatial and temporal (time series) statistics. Building of algorithms and programming applications for decision making. Modeling coupled soil hydraulic and plant water simulations. The position will support and interact with several Israel-wide and European funded large projects.

    Mitigation of moth infestations through studying interactions with phytopathogenic fungi
    Moths (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) are worldwide fruit pests and are attracted to oviposit on plant material infected with fungi. Throughout this project, we will examine whether fungal volatiles serve as semiochemicals and can be used for monitoring or trapping the carob moth - a key pest of almonds. Additionally, the effect of fungi on larval development will be examined to assess the potential for larval suppression through its associated fungal microbiome.

    Examining the potential to control fruit flies through manipulating the intestinal or fruit microbiome
    During their larval stage fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) develop in close association with maternally-transmitted anf fruit-associated bacteria. In many economically important species these bacteria induce fruit rot or reside in dedicated organs in the intestine, and contribute (sometimes essentially) to the ability of larvae to utilize the fruit. During this study we will characterize the contribution of bacteria to larval development, and examine the possibility of suppressing larval development through altering / controlling their microbiota or the fruit microbiome.
