Description

This BBSRC/EPSRC-funded ROBuST project seeks to understand the molecular circuitry that enables plants to react to or withstand sometimes extreme daily and seasonal temperature changes. To do this we are combining experimentation, computational modelling and mathematical approaches to establish how temperature modifies signalling through a central regulatory network comprising teh interconnected pathways of light, cold acclimation and the circadian clock.
