Research Focus

To cope with short term environmental changes, plants have evolved complex signaling networks that start with stress perception and end with appropriate cellular responses.

In this context we are analysing the molecular basis of Ca2+-dependent signaling pathways in plant organelles and the role of Ca2+, ROS and plant hormones in drought stress.

In addition to the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, we are investigating the staple crops barley and potato.
