iBio: Millennium Institute for Integrative Biology ( http://www.ibio.cl/ )

The long-term goal of the Millennium Institute for Integrative Biology (iBio) is to understand how environmental perturbations control plant and fungal properties as individuals, and also as interacting entities. These studies consider the effect of genetic variability, abiotic perturbations (nitrogen, light, temperature), biological interactions (beneficial or detrimental) and the molecular mechanisms that govern time-dependent genetic programs, such as circadian and developmental processes.
