The recent increases in the international cereal prices is causing food inflation worldwide, reminding us that low crop production has a high impact even in the developed world. Agriculture is subjected to many challenges due to the several factors which influence crop yield (e.g. of climatic and demographic nature). Many sophisticated techniques can be utilized to overcome these difficulties as e.g. Transcriptomics, Proteomics and Metabolomics. I've been studying stress responsive proteins and metabolites to understand how plants can cope with the increasing environmental constraints. In this talk I intend to discuss some of the decisions made and how that influenced the subsequent research.
