  • Name of company: Plant Reproductive Biology and Advanced Imaging Laboratory (PReBAIL)Estación Experimental del Zaidín. CSIC
  • Webpage: https://www.eez.csic.es/es/biologia-reproductiva-de-plantas
  • Responsible for the entity: Juan de Dios Alché Ramírez
  • Contact: juandedios.alche@eez.csic.es
  • Description:The main goal of the research group is to advance into the knowledge of the reproductive developmental biology of plants, including model plants (Arabidopsis, Lilium…) and particularly in species of agronomic interest like the olive tree, lupine and argan, in order to further manipulate the plant reproductive cycle improving crop productivity and quality. In addition, we aim to understand the impact of different components from reproductive tissues (pollen, fruit, seed) and other industrial derived products, i.e. oils, flours, isolates, in allergy, their nutritional and nutraceutical properties, and in the development of molecular tools of agro-food interest. To achieve these objectives, we use multidisciplinary approaches, encompassing integrative omics, and biochemical, molecular and cellular methods, with special emphasis in advanced microscopy techniques. Current research lines include the study of the functional role of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species in developmental physiology, storage lipids and oxylipins in signaling and metabolism during plant reproduction, and the characterization of the potential health benefits of seed constituents as anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic molecules. These research lines have also broad practical applications, which are explored through the development of patentable and transferable industrial collaborations.
