Cell and developmental biology UP

The topics of our research team are: "Signal Networks and Cytoskeleton", "Development of Polarity in Plants" and "Interactions between Plants and Microorganisms", which are closely related to signal transduction cascades, cytoskeleton and endomembranes. Our team uses complex cell-biological, genetic, biotechnological, biochemical and proteomic approaches to better understand the molecular signalling in plants in relation to plant stress (both abiotic and biotic) physiology. In addition to exploring the relationships between the plant and its environment, we are currently also studying biotic interactions of model plants (Arabidopsis, alfalfa and barley) with some beneficial and pathogenic microorganisms. To study the interplay between mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) and cytoskeleton during plant development and stress adaptation, we use molecular biology and genetics methods and techniques (including CRISPR/Cas9 and various mutants) combined with advanced cell biology and microscopy (including super-resolution and light-sheet microscopy).
