Evolution and Development of

Flowers, Fruits and Reproductive Meristems


Our research lines


Our lab is mainly focused on the study of genetic networks controling different aspects of reproductive development.

  • Genetic control of the end of the flowering phase
  • Genetic networks controlling floral reproductive organ development
  • Genetic basis of the evolution of the angiosperm carpel
  • Biotechnological applications to improve reproductive traits in crops

Celebrating

This was a really special celebration. Cristina just got her promotion to Full Professor and this is the BIG THANKS to all the team (those that could join and those that couldn’t, and also those that were here before). To do science is great, but It’s the people that makes this job special and fun.

EvoFruLanders

We are now hosting for some months two researchers from the EvoFruLand project. Sebastian Martinez Salazar is a MsC student that comes from Universidad de Antioquia, en Colombia and works with floral spurs. Moisés Pérez Rojas is a PhD student in CINVESTAT, Irapuato, in Mexico, and works in cytokinin signalling in strawberry fruits. Welcome!

Welcome, Marina

Marina Roura just joined the lab for her Master Thesis project, under Ludo’s supervision.

Marina is from Barcelona. She studied Biotechnology at U. Barcelona and did 2m Erasmus time in U. of Cardiff in 2021. Now, all her work works to rice flowers…. Good luck!
