Laboratory of Molecular Biology

The Laboratory of Molecular biology aims to understand the molecular basis of plant growth and development.

The Laboratory of Molecular Biology studies fundamental processes to generate insight in molecular networks that modulate the development of different plant organs especially in relation to environmental interactions. Our research includes studies on root and shoot architecture, plant-microbe symbiosis, organ formation, flowering time, tissue regeneration and embryo development. Fundamental insights into how plants grow and develop can drive the improvement of agricultural practices.
