Plant Metabolism

In order to devise rational strategies to improve stress tolerance of crop plants, it is mandatory to deeply understand the cellular and molecular events during plant responses to abiotic and biotic stress.

The overall aim of the group is the identification and functional characterization of gene and protein functions that limit plant productivity under stressed and non-stressed conditions, as well as of novel molecular and metabolic components of stress signalling and acclimation.
