About Peleg Lab

Welcome to the website of the Peleg's lab.  We are a plant science lab that focuses on understanding crop-plants adaptions to changing environments. We use various genetic resources such as wild progenitors of wheat, old landraces and advanced cultivars, introgression lines, and various segregating populations. Our goal is to bridge the genotype-phenotypes gap and discover novel genes and traits that will facilitate future breeding programs for climate-resilience crops.  We develop novel pre-breeding material with adapted genetic backgrounds to improve yield production under the Mediterranean semi-arid climatic conditions.
