Elucidate the mechanisms of response to abiotic stress of seagrasses species, particularly Posidonia oceanica by high-throughput proteomics, transcriptome RNAseq technology and ecophysiology. Application of proteomics to Cymodocea nodosa under seawater acidification and to Halophila stipulacea; sub-cellular proteome and ultrastructure of chloroplasts of Posidonia oceanica under different light regimes. On the side of translation proteomics, drought stress effects of crops and pesticide resistance mechanism in cyanobacteria have been investigated.
