Ongoing projects
“Expression analysis of transcription factors in different Italian rice cultivars differing in their tolerance to drought stress.” The aim of this work is the identification of transcription factors, especially Myb factors known to be involved in environmental stress response, which expression pattern correlates to drought tolerance in Italian rice cultivars. Another project is in progress on Italian tomato cultivars to identify, through transcriptional profile analysis, different pathways activated in response to osmotic stress in drought-tolerant and drought-sensitive cultivars. This work is supported by Accordo Quadro CNR - Regione Lombardia (http://ribitinnova.ibba.cnr.it/)
