Objectives: To decipher the signalling network of ATR7 in Arabidopsis thaliana, which can serve as a fundamental basis for further molecular improvement of crops via transcriptome and metabolome analysis and the identification of genes and proteins which interact with the ATR7 stress network in A. thaliana.
Objectives: Enhancing the tolerance to abiotic stress of important vegetable crops through modulation of ATR7 levels.
Objectives: To develop a system for enhancing the tolerance of vegetable crops to abiotic and oxidative stress through molecular priming (acclimation). The WP will lead to induced stress tolerance in A. thaliana and crop species.
Objectives: To train the ESRs in advanced bioinformatics and statistics.
The WP will lead to identification of ATR7 homologues and co-expressed genes in other species; identification of stress-related genes commonly regulated in different crop species; identification of metabolic stress signatures and specific metabolites altered in abundance during different stresses.
