Conifer genome structural and functional characterization

Our group is interested in conifer genome characterization through DNA sample sequencing and targeted BAC analysis.

Nitrogen metabolism


Our group works in plant nitrogen metabolism since 1991 mainly focused in conifers. In 1993 we were the first research group to clone and characterize a glutamine synthetase (GS) in a tree conifer species (Cantón et al. 1993).

Regulation of Nitrogen metabolism

The final subject studied by our group is the regulation of  Nitrogen metabolism in pine through the study of the transcription factors and promoter region of the genes coding for the main enzymes in the plant nitrogen metabolism.
