Plant Genomics and Systems Biology Laboratory

The aim of this group is to identify gene networks controlling plant development and plant responses to environmental cues such as nutrient deficiency conditions. We are particularly interested in the identification of development and/or nutrient-regulated networks that are controlled by small RNAs such as micro RNAs or other small RNAs and also in identifying novel transcriptional regulators of root system architecture. To fulfill our experimental goals, we are taking an integrative approach that combines the analysis of omics data (principally transcriptomics), modelling of gene networks and molecular biology in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and other plants of agronomic interest such as Solanum lycopersicum.
