Our Mission:

Establish in molecular detail how plants - and their major pests and pathogens - react to environmental changes. Understand the origins and regulation of plant diversity at the level of genomes, molecular signals, and response mechanisms.

If we know which genes and molecules are essential to cope with new environments it becomes feasible to predict how plants will respond, paving the way for sustainable solutions to conserve earth’s biodiversity and for innovations enabling sustainable food production.
