Four research objectives have been defined: (1) Biochemistry and nuclear architecture of chromatin complexes; (2) Chromatin complex components and regulators' function in plant development, circadian clock and stress tolerance; (3) Chromatin complex target genes; (4) Chromatin and crop improvement. The partners provide multi-disciplinary cutting-edge technologies and know-how in chromatin research that will create synergy and added value for Europe. Six Pre-docs and one Post-Doc will be trained by five academic and one industrial partner through research projects, secondments in the partner laboratories, and for complementary skills.
