Molecular Plant Physiology
last update: 03-09-2014
The Molecular Plant Physiology group is investigating sugar-, light- and high temperature-mediated signal transduction mechanisms and carbohydrate metabolism in plants. Sugars activate signalling systems that lead to altered gene expression and a variety of plant responses that include resource allocation and growth. Similarly light and high temperatures have profound effects on plant gene expression, architecture and floral transition. These processes are investigated in Arabidopsis using molecular, genetical and physiological methods.
