About my project

Heat stress afects the development of gynoecia in plants, decreasing the number and quality of seeds. This project aims to elucidate which is the role of auxin, a plant hormone, during heat stress in order to develop thermoresistant plants. Our previous work indicates that auxin is related to the response and adaptation to heat stress.
