The development of plants depends on reliable signalling mechanisms providing information on the actual state of the outer environment. The multilevel interaction of these mechanisms (e.g. light, clock and hormonal regulation) forms a regulatory network, which allows plants to respond adequately to changes in the ambient environment. In the Nagy lab @ the University of Edinburgh, our research primarily focuses on the molecular mechanism by which the phytochromes, the red/far-red absorbing photoreceptors, convert light into a biochemical signal.

Research in the Nagy lab @ the University of Edinburgh is currently funded by the UK Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance (SULSA).
