Braam Research

Plants are unable to escape from harsh environments and perhaps as a consequence have evolved the ability to undergo adaptive changes in physiology and development. The mechanisms by which plants sense environmental stresses, transduce signals into cells and regulate cellular and organismal alterations are incompletely understood. We take a molecular genetic approach to investigating these aspects of plant biology.

Research Areas

Abiotic and biotic stress responses of plants; the circadian clock; plant defense; regulation and function of plant extracellular vesicles.
