Our group works on functional genomics of plants and fungi.
We focus our studies in common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris), where our main interest is to determine the influence of events of introgression and domestication in the structure and function of its genome. In fungi, we use the mycoparasite Trichoderma atroviride as a model to study its interaction with plants and the molecular mechanisms involved in its responses to light and mechanic damage, the latter used as a model to understand regeneration processes.
