Molecular Plant Biology

Plants give us the oxygen we breathe, the food we eat, wood and fibres for our houses and clothes, medicines and renewable energy. Since plants constitute the major biomass, they form the environment for many other organisms. For the future, a big challenge will be to produce crops that can supply the world's growing population with food and energy. But the plants are very exposed. Their special niche is to combine water and nutrients from the soil with light and gases from the air. They are then open to adverse environmental factors. To survive, they have intricate systems for control of growth, development, transport and metabolism, and they respond in several self-protective manners against environmental stresses, both abiotic and biotic. We are especially interested in molecular mechanisms by which metabolism, redox compounds, organelles and membranes are involved in plant interactions with the biotic and abiotic environment.
