We are part of POLYPLOID, an international consortium that has been granted with an H2020 RISE award, which includes the University of Perugia, UC Davis, CONICET, University of Milano, National University of Ireland Galway and Lincoln University of New Zealand.

POLYPLOID will integrate genomics and epigenomics approaches to mine genes and identify key agronomical traits involved in stress tolerance that are influenced by plant polyploidy. The project will apply state-of-the-art technologies, combining molecular profiling techniques (including the analysis of chromosomal changes, gene loss, gene expression and DNA methylation) and remote sensing-based phenotyping in key crops and plant models.
