We are located at the Institute of Agricultural and Nutritional Sciences at MLU Halle-Wittenberg. Our aim is to understand developmental processes plants evolved to interact with the environment. Within this broad context we are investigating different biological questions:
- We seek to understand thermomorphogenesis, the developmental plasticity triggered by growth at elevated temperatures. Specifically, we are interested in signal transduction pathways plants activate to translate temperature stimuli to growth responses.
- Our second research interest relates to the evolution of development. Here, we combine evolutionary and transcriptomic information to study the regulation of major developmental transitions in a plant’s life cycle.
