I-CORE Research:

Energy-Rich Biomass

Identification of genes for plant tolerance to multiple abiotic stresses to facilitate eventual production of energy-rich biomass in drylands

Research Group:

Ruth Shaked, Gil Eshel, Yana Kazachkova


Other Research Areas:

1. The role of DEAD-box RNA helicases in regulating Arabidopsis stress responses.

2. Systems biology approaches to understanding global plant responses to abiotic stress

3. Using Arabidopsis relatives to understand the mechanisms underlying wild-species adaptation to stress.
