Enric Bertran Garcia de OlallaPhD
Enric comes from Tarragona, Spain. He is interested in the regulation and functions of MIR172 genes at the shoot apical meristem during floral transition.
Martina Cerise comes from Italy. She is interested in understanding the apical stem cells behaviour during the floral transition in Arabidopsis thaliana
Na Ding comes from China. She is interested in understanding the gene regulatory networks promoting flowering in Arabidopsis, particularly focusing on FLOWERING LOCUS D (FD) and FRUITFULL (FUL).
Annabel van DrielPhD
Annabel comes from Utrecht, The Netherlands. She is interested in the function of SPL15, a transcription factor involved in the integration of different endogenous flowering pathways. She wants to find out what genes are targeted by this transcription factor and to further unravel how it is mechanistically able to alter transcription of these targets.
Vítor comes from Brazil. He is interested in understanding the miR172/AP2 network at the meristem by establishing single cell transcriptomics. He is also involved in how post-translation of regulatory proteins controls flowering.
He comes from China, and is interested in post-translational modification of CONSTANS protein and identifying genes downstream of transcription factors that act in the photoperiodic flowering pathway of Arabidopsis.
Yi-Chen Lin comes from Taipei, Taiwan. He is interested in ecological adaptation as well as molecular basis of variation in flowering behaviour from natural populations of perennial plant species Arabis alpina. His current research centers on phenotypic natural variation and molecular mechanism in flowering time in the Scandinavian populations.
Eva Madrid comes from Cordoba, Spain. She is interested in studying perennialism vs. Annualism by developing a series of introgression lines (ILs) from a backcross between Arabis montbretiana and Arabis alpina.
Yohanna comes from Brazil. She is interested in the regulation of miRI56 in the control of floral induction in Arabidopsis thaliana.
Chloé comes from France. She studies the transcriptional regulatory network controlling flowering at the shoot apical meristem in Arabidopsis thaliana. She is focusing on the photoperiodic pathway and the molecular function of the bZIP Transcription factor FD by applying genome-wide approaches.
Adrian comes from Germany and is interested in the regulation of microRNAs at the shoot meristem by endogenous signals such as age and metabolites as well as environmental factors. My project focuses on the expression of the genes encoding microRNA156 and their effect on reproductive development.
Niharika comes from India. She is interested in understanding the floral bud arrest in perennial Arabis alpina and the regulation of perennial FLC genes
Edouard Severing comes from the Netherlands and is mainly interested in studying the evolution of annual and perennial species using bioinformatic tools.
Alice comes from France. She is interested in studying the morphological modifications at the shoot apical meristem during floral transition using microscopy and computational tools.
Coral VincentResearch Assistant
Coral Vincent comes from England and is working primarily on cytological approaches such as in situ hybridizations and grafting
Kang comes from China. He is interested in flowering regulatory mechanisms of both Arabidopsis thaliana and perennial Arabis alpina. His project focuses on the regulatory networks of AP2, SOC1 and FUL in both species.
