Key research questions

Three key questions for exploring the boundaries that constrain or enable plants to tune their response in an adaptive way are addressed:

  • How do plants and pests and pathogens perceive, integrate and process stress signals?
  • How do physiological and genetic alterations translate into changes of the interaction between these organisms in green ecosystems?
  • How do plant and pest and pathogens genomes (co-)evolve as a result of environmental changes?
