The recently created Spain-Portugal Chapter of the Marie Curie Alumni Association met at the Centre for Research of Agricultural Genomics CRAG on January, 26th to 27th. This Chapter is an interactive platform which brings together scientists from the Marie Curie Alumni Association and it is funded by the European Commission.
Researchers of the CBGP have shown that the introduction in crops of resistance genes against viruses, selected not only for host-range expansion but also for changes in virus survival. Virus survival, a character unrelated with host-pathogen interaction, can condition host-range expansion. This work has been published in Molecular Biology and Evolution.
Dr. Elena Ramirez-Parra and Dr. Juan Carlos del Pozo, researchers at the Centro de Biotecnología y Genómica de Plantas (CBGP), have analyzed molecular mechanisms underlying drought and salt tolerance in autopolyploid plants. The results were recently published in the journal Plant Cell & Environment.
