The Plant Sciences Division is composed of nine Laboratories performing research that extends from cell biology and developmental genetics, through biochemistry, genetic engineering and biotechnology, to ecophysiology. The model-plants Arabidopsis thaliana, Thellungiella halophila, Medicago truncatula, Oryza sativa (rice) and Antirrhinum majus, are used with the purpose of elucidating basic aspects of development, biochemistry and responses to stress, and to give information that could support the study of economical relevant plants, such as, rice itself, maize, grain legumes, grapevine, olive, almond, pine, cork oak and eucalypt.

Head of Division: Nelson Saibo
