PlantStressLab - Andrea Schubert
Professor in Plant Physiology. My expertise covers molecular and physiological responses to combined stress, stress-responsive sRNAs, and biosynthesis of flavonoids in crop plants such as grape and tomato. I am also concerned with the implications of these processes in the optimisation of plant growing and fruit processing techniques. I am a co-founder of Grape Srl and of StrigoLab Srl.
