AL 04 - Molecular Physiology 

Laboratory Activities with PlantStress Biotech INCT
  • Sequencing and integrating transcriptomes of model plants (Arabdopsis, Setaria) subjected to drought and high temperature during bioassays.

  • Validate the function of plant genes potentially involved in the mechanisms of drought tolerance in Arabidopsis, rice or sepia plants via overexpression or silencing strategies.

  • Generate PGMs from soybean, cotton and corn via strategies of overexpression or silencing of plant genes and evaluate the phenotype obtained regarding drought tolerance.

  • Phenotyping (greenhouse or field) maize, soybean and cotton populations resulting from crossing GM events to obtain proof of concept of drought tolerance and/or resistance to Spodoptera frugiperda, Helicoverpa armigera or Meloidogyne spp.

  • Generate PGMs from soybean, cotton and corn via strategies of overexpression or silencing of plant genes and evaluate the phenotype obtained regarding drought tolerance.

  • Organize, maintain and share an in vivo bank of the innovation assets obtained in the project shared by INCT members.
