CPSC Lecture with Prof. Paloma Mas

   
The Arabidopsis circadian clock: a question of time

The circadian clock is an endogenous timing mechanism that is able to coordinate biological rhythms in synchronization with the environmental changes that occur during the day and night cycle.

Prof. Paloma Mas.

The circadian function in plants is essential for proper physiology and development. In our lab, we are interested in elucidating the components and mechanisms of circadian clock function in Arabidopsis.

We aim to identify the regulatory networks underlying the clockwork and the processes that are controlled by the clock. In this seminar, I will briefly describe our studies focusing on the transcriptional and epigenetic regulation at the core of the clock.

I will also describe results connecting the clock with metabolic and stress pathways as well as our recent studies identifying the hierarchical circadian organization in plants.

Prof. Paloma Mas is CSIC Professor and Head of the Plant Molecular Genetics Department at the Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) in Barcelona, Spain. She is group leader for the research group Molecular Mechanisms of Circadian Clock Function.
