We seek to decipher how organisms confronted with several environmental cues are able to regulate their gene expression in order to maintain proper homeostatic control. We are interested in understanding how stress-responsive genes are activated at the level of transcription. Our research investigations use the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Desulfovibrio gigas as model systems.



The ITQB genomics and Stress laboratory is headed by Professor Claudina Rodrigues-Pousada and is integrated in the Biological Chemistry Division
