The project will be carried out in close collaboration with the group of Dr Pavel Kerchev at Mendel University in Brno and the Van Breusegem lab at the VIB-UGent Center for Plant Systems Biology, Belgium, and aims at elucidating how redox regulation is integrated with epigenetic control of the response to environmental stimuli in plants.
The project will investigate how redox regulation impacts the epigenetic landscape in response to environmental stimuli in plants. You will use a multidisciplinary approach combining molecular biology, recombinant protein expression and purification, generation and work with mutant and transgenic plants (analysis of protein complexes, confocal microscopy), plant physiological assays for immunity, and abiotic stress tolerance and development.
