Nano-mechanical response in stressed and diseased living root tissues
1st June 2019
Perform rigorous indentation measurements on plant root tissues to detect early events in growth arrest due to environmental stress.
Nano-mechanical response of root tissues during abiotic stress for understanding the STOP1-LPR1 multi-stress signaling pathways of Arabidopsis. The ESR will perform nano-mechanical measurements of cells on live tissues (roots). Measurements will be performed on wild-type and mutant plants both in normal and stress conditions. The ESR will be engaged in all work packages and will participate to communication and dissemination.
