Environmental Research in Order to Preserve Our Natural Resources

Research Focus

The Institute of Biochemical Plant Pathology explores natural defence mechanisms, growth and fitness of plants, as well as the efficient use of resources in response to environmental cues. Focus is placed on the molecular mechanisms that allow plants to respond and adapt to biotic as well as abiotic factors. Signal perception and transduction pathways in plant adaptation and growth are being addressed by genetic and biochemical approaches and plant phenotyping.
