PhD Research Project 8
Development of a gene network for modelling of pollen thermotolerance
All high-throughput approaches require the management and organization
of the data produced and the integration of the manifold existing
resources for the identication of variations with respect to
environment or genetics. The project will include the development of
an integrated database with metabolomic, transcriptomic and proteomic
data associated to information related to the many gene and gene
families involved. The objectives are
1) development of an efficient data management system,
2) integration of proteomics, metabolomics, and transcriptomics data
derived from different experimental efforts,
3) modelling of the regulatory network implied in the HSR, and
4) comparative analysis among heat sensitive and tolerant genotypes to
provide support for the functional analysis of major gene families
included in the response.
The project requires data management, data mining and advanced bioinformatics.
