Overcoming functional redundancy to uncover transport mechanisms

The lab has two main interests:

1. Developing novel genome-scale CRISPR tools, that allow targeting multiple genes from the same family, and overcoming functional redundancy in plants. sgRNA libraries and biotechnological tools are applied to Arabidopsis, as well as crops (e.g., tomato and rice).

 

2. Understand the molecular factors regulating plant hormones transport mechanisms (auxin, ABA, gibberellin, cytokinin); and nutrient uptake (e.g., nitrate and iron).
