Research topics & objectives

Our group focuses on three fields - the analysis of C4 photosynthesis using transcriptomics, kinetic modeling and stoichiometric modeling, the analysis of transcriptional responses to changing environments or mutations, and network analyses of large transcriptional systems.

Occasionally, we moonlight in other topics, such as high-throughput phenotyping.

We work with typical models, such as algae and Arabidopsis, with crop plants such as wheat, maize, and barley, or with plants with unusual characteristics, such as Talinum, Flaveria, Cleome or Azolla filiculoides. Lab-based and computational methods reveal the connections in metabolic and transcriptional networks. We use next generation sequencing data to resolve acclimation and adaptation to adverse environmental conditions and to ultimately understand how high productivity is maintained.
