UV-B perception and signalling in plants

Ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B; 280-315 nm) is a key environmental signal for plants that is specifically perceived by the UV-B photoreceptor UVR8 to promote UV acclimation and survival in sunlight. The major aim of our laboratory is a better understanding of the UV-B perception and signalling mechanisms in plants.
