Plants monitor and respond to their environment constantly, which is essential for their viability and fitness. The ultimate goal of our research is to understand the molecular mechanisms by which plants perceive environmental signals and integrate signals to regulate their growth and development. We are using Arabidopsis thaliana as a model plant to investigate two distinct but interacting responses, one to temperature variations and one to pathogen invasions.
