Our lab is located in the Agricultural and Life Sciences Building in the Department of Horticulture at Oregon State University
Our group conducts functional genomics and plant physiology studies on fruit and cereal crops. We study different aspects of plant biology either as part of a developmental program or in response to stress conditions. Our final objective is to translate this knowledge for crop production improvement. Using fundamentals of plant physiology, genetic, bioinformatics, molecular and systems biology we specifically study basic plant processes associated with plant hormone signaling, plant pathogen interactions, long-distance signaling communications in perennial and annual crops. Our plant models for research are grapevine (field and controlled environment) and strawberry as fruit crop and Brachypodium distachyon (stiff brome) for cereal crops.
Students and researchers at any level in their educational path and career (Post-Doctoral, PhD, MSc, BSc) with or seeking training in plant molecular biology, genetics or bioinformatics may contact us to discuss possible projects and mentorships. The Deluc Lab accepts motivated students eager to learn plant sciences, genomics and genetic engineering.
