Abscisic Acid (ABA) is a phytohormone involved in drought tolerance in land plants.

It takes a fundamental role in plant life partecipating in the control of root growth, seed and bud dormancy, guard cell responses and cellular osmoprotection.
It is also involved in fruit ripening.

Our aim is to extend ABA gene network in grapevine (VITIS VINIFERA), starting from a list of genes known to be related to ABA response.

The workunit name for this expansions starts with "vv_aba"

So how many students have their experiments in this project? :)

Three groups of students, they already queued all the needed "experiments" to the system.

So many that you are still counting? :P

Well, not so many,the number of involved students is around 15. It's a class of Laboratory of Biological Data Mining (master degree in Informatics and Mathematics for Life Sciences)

We have started a new experiment related to the AREB2 gene.

AREB2 is a Bzip transcription factor that starts the ABA signaling cascade.
In this experiment we want to find genes that are directly regulated by the AREB2 in order to get a better understanding of the ABA signaling in Vitis Vinifera.

The name of the workunit is “vv_aba_areb2”
