ATTIVITÀ DI RICERCA, INFORMAZIONE E PROMOZIONE

 

In the frame of the European CISCODE Project, we use genomics technologies to harness information present in the diversity of species to fill in the gaps in our understanding of model and crop plants. We focus on a fundamental biological system, plant reproduction, and use genomic and post-genomic tools to model the regulatory network in the reproductive process. Using a comparative approach, we aim to understand how evolutionary variation in non-coding DNA regions has led to variation in reproductive processes. To derive maximum benefit from a comparative analysis, we focus on a key set of genetic interactions characterized in Arabidopsis. Our final aim is to achieve an understanding of the cis-regulatory elements controlling reproduction, to understand the evolutionary variation and to benefit from this information for crop improvement.

Our specific objectives are:
