Research focus

Living cells possess a large variety of molecular pathways to detect and process environmental information. As precise and timely information processing is crucial for the reproductive success of organisms, the design of these pathways follow similar concepts as known from engineering disciplines to increase the signal-to-noise ratio. Our group is interested to understand the underlying molecular principles of these pathways and how environmental information is detected, stored, and processed within plants.
