Our long-term goal is the understanding of the genetic differences between Arabidopsis accessions affecting important adaptive traits such as seed dormancy and plant growth. We expect that understanding this genetic variation will help explaining why specific variants are adapted to specific environments and that knowledge of the genetic basis of these traits will help breeding crop plants.
