-Members of the Fedoroff research group interests range from both basic research on molecular mechanisms to practical issues of crop stress adaptation and food production in coastal desert environments:

  • Molecular mechanisms of microRNA precursor processing in Arabidopsis
  • Molecular mechanisms of transposition and epigenetic regulation of plant transposable element
  • Epigenetic mechanisms of plant abiotic stress adaptation
  • Molecular approaches to increasing salt and heat stress tolerance of temperate crops
  • Aquaponic system design
  • Greenhouse cooling systems and design suitable to humid desert conditions
  • Halophyte domestication using accelerated breeding and molecular modification
