The Des Marais Lab
R.M. Parsons Laboratory | MIT

The primary focus of research in the Des Marais Lab is to understand the mechanisms of plant-environment interaction.

We use tools from molecular, quantitative and population genetics to identify the physiological basis of plant response to environmental cues, and ask how these mechanisms constrain or facilitate plant breeding and evolutionary change.
