Investigating the role of phytohormone cytokinin in lateral root development under salt stress
Soil salinity is detrimental to crop production and agriculture. Plants can not move around like animals to avoid the unfavourable soil environments since they are rooted into the soil. However, they have evolved adaptation strat ...

Unravel the salt tolerance mechanism of halophyte S.parvula via comparative-transcriptomic analysis
Salinity is a major and increasing problem for agriculture. The loss of arable land, together with reduced crop production in saline soils, poses a serious challenge to agricultural sustainability and food production. Most crop pl ...

Endophyte-plant symbiosis – coevolution to mute plant defence responses?
Indigenous plant tissues are colonized by a vast number of different microorganisms including bacteria, fungi, protists and archaea. In contrast to harmful plant pathogens, endophytes inhabit internal plant tissues inter- or intra ...

How does salt stress affect plant lateral root development?
Plant development is highly responsive to specific conditions that the plant experiences. Salt stress is one of the major threats for modern agriculture. Salt stress has massive impacts on plant root growth and root morphology. La ...

The possible role of Lectin receptor-like kinases (LecRLKs) in salt sensing
Aim: Functional characterization of Lectin receptor-like kinases in plant salt sensing. Salt sensing is the initial step in salt-stress signalling pathways that may control plan salt tolerance. However, how plants sense the sodiu ...

Exploring Solanaceae genomes for the presence of gene clusters that encode for secondary metabolites important for plant resilience
Upon biotic stress, plants adapt their metabolome to cope with their attackers. We study how plants regulate the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites related to these adaptations. An important class of secondary metabolites in Ca ...

A bioinformatics approach to identify the transcriptional gene regulatory network guiding root branching in response to salt stress
Soil salinity is detrimental to crop production and agriculture. Plants can not move around like animals to avoid the unfavorable soil environments since they are rooted into the soil. However, they have evolved adaptation strate ...

Better communication for better tolerance: multi-omics reveal salt tolerance mechanism of halophyte S.parvula
Salt stress is usually highly localized at roots and, however, elicits stress response at whole-plant level, suggesting shoot-root communication is important for plants to deal with salt stress. Vasculature is the highway in plant ...

Seed longevity in lettuce
Background: Seed storage is essential for the conservation of biodiversity in ecological settings (soil seed bank) as well as in storage facilities for crop production. The latter is extremely relevant for the Dutch plant breeding ...

Directed mutagenesis of plant-derived terpene synthases for bacterial production
Terpenes represent the largest group of plant natural products. With more than 30000 compounds known and the highest variety of applications, from food flavoring to pharmaceutical and cosmetics, biotech industries’ interest in the ...
