CRAG’s Researchers discover how to generate plants with enhanced drought resistance
Barcelona Synchrotron Park surrounding area is certainly the park’s prime value offered to its companies. This environment is made of a dense business fabric and the leading research centres of the neighbouring BSP’s partner Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB).

In CRAG, one of these centres, an important discovery recently published in Nature Communications has been made: a research team led by CRAG researcher Ana Caño-Delgado has obtained plants that are more resistant to water scarcity by genetic modifications.
To this date, the scientific community had not been able to obtain a drought resistant plant without affecting plant growth.
Researchers are already working to apply this knowledge obtained with the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana in cereals and horticultural species.
