Hormones modulate almost every aspect of plant development. Thus, the knowledge we generate on hormone signaling pathways is potentially relevant to agronomical applications. Our lab is committed to exploring these connections, and we develop several projects with partner SMEs, such as Alcaliber and Dadelos Agrícola.
We also collaborate with other groups in Valencia to have access to Citrus, tomato and rice technology.
