Our research is focused on the molecular mechanisms underlying the response of plants to nutrients, specifically, on the complex interactions between nutrients in metabolic pathways. On our research we use a combination of bioinformatics, transcriptomics, molecular biology and plant physiology approaches for the identification of novel regulatory genes involved in the coordinated assimilation of sulfur and nitrogen in plants. This knowledge is critical for improving plant growth and crop yield.
