The general objectives are to analyze responses and adaptations of plants to multiple stresses and to identify the level and functions of stress regulatory networks and crosstalk. Both biotic (pathogens & insects) and abiotic (unfavourable environmental conditions) stresses will be taken into account. Genomic approaches in the model Arabidopsis will be used to provide knowledge and tools for breeding crops with enhanced tolerance to stress conditions in the field.
