Plant Phenomics

Plant phenomics is a discipline that uses high throughput methods to link genes to their function in plant context. Our team is focused on study the function of Ubiquitin Proteasome System (UPS) components in Arabidopsis growth and development as well as in responses to environmental challenges. Our team is also in charge of coordinating research activities at the National Plant Phenotyping Infrastructure - NaPPI.


A selection of RING type ubiquitin E3 ligases are being assigned to plant developmental stages and organs based on gene expression profiling, by high throughput phenotyping of mutant, and by structure-functional biochemical characterization.
