Molecular Genetics, Development and Physiology

Research in the field of plant molecular genetics, development, and physiology aims to understand fundamental mechanisms in plant growth and its response to the environment. The process may occur at the organelle, cell-type-specific tissue, or the whole plant level.


Research in the fields focuses on plant model systems such as Arabidopsis, tobacco and tomato, but often includes additional important crops such as wheat, rice and more.


The research consists of approaches such as plant biochemistry, molecular biology, cellular imaging, genome engineering, bioinformatics, mathematical modeling, phenomics, and advanced physiological equipment to quantify the plant's response to the changing environment.
