Environment and development



As sessile organism, plants are anavoidably exposed to a plethora of stimuli generated by the surrounding environment, both of biotic and abiotic origin. We are interested in understand how these are integrated into genetic circuitries and affect the patterns of growth and development. In particular, we are currently dedicated to investigate how oxygen gradients within meristems affect their activity and maintenance.
