Dr. Jose Barbosa

University of Tennessee Chattanooga

Dr. Jose Barbosa's interests are focused on gaining a better understanding of plant physiological, biochemical and molecular responses to environmental stresses. He is interested in abiotic stresses, particularly heat, salinity, osmotic, drought and oxidative stresses. Using molecular tools, his lab has the opportunity to identify and characterize genes involved in stress responses. Concomitantly, his lab measures physiological performance and biochemical parameters of Arabidopsis thaliana and Saccharomyces cerevisiae exposed to widely varying environments.
