Seed germination and seedling establishment 

Plants are highly susceptible to stress during germination and initial seedling development. Salinity and drought impair seedling development and thus severely reduce crop plants growth and yield.

    In our group we investigate the nature of signaling pathways that mediate the young seedling's response to environmental conditions, including salt- and drought-stress.

     We utilize advanced methods of fluorescent microscopy, molecular biology and biochemistry to study the molecular mechanisms that underlie the signaling pathways of calcium, electric signal and hormones, in determining the germinating-seedling development and physiology, under abiotic stress conditions.

We have open positions for a lab manager, Ms.C. and Ph.D. students.
