Résumé:
Understanding how organisms are able to respond at different time scales is an essential component of deciphering the impact and long-term consequences of changing environment. Studies in wild settings allow for exploring how phenotypic variation is modulated by variation in gene expression resulting from sequence polymorphisms and regulatory mechanisms. My lab group uses reduced representation bisulphite sequencing and transcriptomic approaches to explore the potential role of genetic and epigenetic processes in natural and controlled studies of native and invasive salt marsh species like Spartina alterniflora and Japanese knotweed. We also leverage the power of the eudicot Arabidopsis and monocot Brachypodium distychum model plant species to confirm our findings in these non-model plants. Combined these studies will enhance our understanding of how genetic and epigenetic variation interact in response to environment on different time scales, and ultimately contribute to adaptation.
