Current Project

- Genomic and functional underpinning of reaction norms across environmental gradient – it is a project funded by the UFS ‘evolutionary systems biology’ along with different universities and institutions to study Phenotypic plasticity in plants –Mechanisms, constraints and evolution. The project aims to study the phenotypic plasticity of various populations of the model plant Arabidopsis Thaliana under environmental stress and to find the genetic basis of the dissimilarities and distinct responses shown in their reaction norms.



Research Interests

  • Plant resources and Agrobiodiversity
  • Biotechnologies applied to plant breeding
  • Technologies and management of the seed sector
  • Ecology and Management of Natural Ecosystems
  • Management of natural resources and biodiversity.
