Laboratorio di ricerca

Lab. namePlant Physiology Lab (PPL) 
Principal Investigator Laura Arru 
ComponentsLaura Arru  (Principal Investigator )
DescriptionIn the past the Lab Resesarch focused on heavy metal polluted soil phytoremediation, but the Research interests now lie in the response of plants to abiotic stress and in their communication. The Lab also collaborates with other Researchers inside the DSV in studying ancient plant DNA (aDNA) from archaeological sites. Being member of the Interdepartmental Centre Biogest-Siteia for Agri-food Biological Resources Improvement and Valorisation (which belongs to the High Technology Network of Emilia-Romagna Region) the applied Research of the Lab also deals with microalgae and in the therapeutic and medicinal properties of plants.
