  • Impact of Nuclear Domains On Gene Expression and Plant Traits (INDEPTH)

    Plants are vital to human life and health and are essential to mitigate the effects of climate change. Due to their sessile lifestyle, plants have developed the ability to rapidly adapt their genome expression in response to environmental challenges. Multiple lines of evidence indicate that spatial (3D) organization of nuclear DNA is critical in this adaptation process and the Impact of Nuclear Domains On Gene Expression and Plant Traits (INDEPTH) network will decipher how nuclear architecture, chromatin organization and gene expression are connected and modified in response to internal and external cues. This is COST Action CA16212

      Positions available at new lab at CRAG

      In July, I will be starting my research group at the Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) in Barcelona, Spain. The research focus of my group will be the epigenetic mechanisms that control developmental transitions in plants, using Arabidopsis and maize as model systems.
